I'd like a repeat of the winter of 1977-78 or 1978-79 please. If those don't work, 1987-88, 1947-48, or 2010-11 work as well. An exact repeat of 2010-11 would actually be pretty great because I'd get the Boxing Day snowstorm in North Carolina and the Groundhog Day Eve snowstorm in Oklahoma. The only problem would be the early start to spring.

Hope everyone gets the winter they want! I want a wet, mild december overall but with a strong snowstorm late month.

Im hoping for a dry, mild January/February after that.

I can't wait for winter to come. Göle will be very cold. I will count the number of days below -30℃ in Göle.

Mild and dry throughout please, with a few powdery snowfalls, none of that heavy wet garbage.

Gonna be tough to get powder if the pattern is mild throughout. But brings up a good question, can there be a wicked cold blast with powder snow with an overall warm mild pattern? Maybe, but don't count on many?


I just want a front loaded winter for a change.


Last time we had above normal snowfall in both November/December was 2012-13, 2002-03, 1995-96. As you can see...not many!

Complete opposite here in the PNW. I just want a back loaded winter for a change. In the past 30 odd years, most winters have peaked in Nov/Dec. I hope we return to a 1950s-70s pattern with winter peaking in Jan/Feb as they have more potential for colder and longer lasting arctic blasts.
