This is the true indicator of how the next 3 months of winter will be.
So in other words weather "forecasters" have no idea.
We already knew that.
I hope it is a mild winter just so we can stick it to Pepco who want to raise their rates yet again the bloody bastards!
Proof of what you said or are you two just spouting hot air?
This warmth of early December is a sign that El Nino may be kicking in with the dryness here and all the storms out West. That is often how it starts. My belief is that we won't have snow until January, but as we progress though winter, we will get some bigger storms and lots of cold weather. There are not usually two winters in a row like last year, and with 24 of the last 35 months being above normal, it has to average out somewhere along the line.
I think December may be mild, but not January through March.
