    Wax yer boards - La Nina winter coming ...

    Vancouver, Western Canada facing record cold temperatures this winter

    As Canadians wrap up what for most has been one of the warmest October weekends in recent memory, they can brace themselves for the coming winter with a long-term forecast calling for thick socks and thicker skins.


    The forecast is for one of the coldest winters in the past 20 years for Western Canada, major snowstorms for Ontario and Quebec, and a drier than normal winter for Atlantic Canada, according to U.S.-based AccuWeather.com.


    That's not to say that blasts of Arctic air won't chill Canadians east of Manitoba, but those bitter blasts will be short.


    "You can be pretty confident that Western Canada will be pretty cold," said Brett Anderson, a senior meteorologist with AccuWeather.com.


    Anderson said temperatures out West will be up to five degrees Celsius lower than normal, meaning temperatures will drop below zero in Vancouver and below about -20 C in Edmonton.


    Vancouver will experience one of its coldest winters on record, Anderson said.


    "The worst of the cold is going to be in Western Canada," Anderson said.


    Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces will see below average snowfall in December, but come January, things are going to change, Anderson said.


    "Its going to be a slower start and then in January, February, it's going to be fairly active," Anderson said.


    "That's when we're going see our significant snowfall events."


    The reason for more snow and more cold? La Nina, a phenomenon that occurs when water temperatures across the central and eastern Pacific are below normal.


    La Nina produces extreme cold across Western Canada during the winter while adding to snowfalls in Ontario and Quebec.


    Water temperatures this year are pointing to a moderate strength La Nina, Anderson said, which help with the predictions.


    This winter will see less snowfall in the Prairies, Anderson said, except in southwestern Alberta.


    Because the Great Lakes are running warmer than normal, the areas around the lakes will have a greater amount of lake-effect snowfall, Anderson said

    Yes.
    I'm actually looking forward to the ski season. Hoping for lots of big snow dumps around this winter.

    Yup.......so any conspiracy theorists out there could look at this crap and see a great way to boost the economy.

    How much $$$ did you waste on these items.....$500ish......now multiply that by thousands of other people....hmmmm.
