Will we have snow? very low temperatures?


This summer was pretty hot and it got me wondering. Will there be a change in East Coast weather for now on? I dont remember much snow last winter.

Due to global warming will we have warmer seasons now?

Anyone have a clue?

Yes, we will. Often, in fact.

Man, people's memories are terrible. Last winter was fairly mild, but do you even remember the winter before that one?

If you go to the weather forum, they will tell you the winters here have never been colder. But I agree with you, these past five years, the winters have been mild here in the mid atlantic. But some people in the weather forum keep saying that these past few winters were colder than we normally have. I have only been alive for about 2.5 decades or so, maybe the people in the weather forum do know better.But if we are right, then no the winters will keep getting warmer, unless we reverse the greenhouse gas effect.

2 years ago we were slammed with snow, so yes, we will have cold weather again.

2010-2011 winter was plenty cold...colder and snowier than scenes depicted in christmas cards. Summers in NY are always brutal due to the humidity & stagnant air

Exactly! One mild winter does not make a "trend". If anything, the 2000's were a very cold/snowy decade. Didn't we have like 4 straight winters of record snowfall from 03-06?

Not sure what the "weather forum" is but the data for NYC weather has shown pretty consistent warming trend.

I don't think too many can argue that these graphs show anything except pretty consistent warming for a century and a half:




So yes, we will have cold winters but fewer of them and they will likely be less and less cold.
If anything, I think that the warming trend will accelerate fairly rapidly.
