For those that follow me on Facebook, you will notice the posts about the spreading snow in Siberia and what it means for the rest of the Northern Hemisphere this winter. I think the key point is that El Nino overrides the impact early Siberian snowfall. But, we are heading towards La Nina this winter. It could be important.
Looking at the 6-10 and 8-14 day outlooks, Flagstaff could be on it’s way to a White Christmas. Below are the outlook maps for precipitation and temperature anomalies. With above average precipitation, and below average temperatures in the outlooks, snow it probably likely for the Northland. Also, the total snowfall prediction for 5 and 10 days from the GFS model at TropicalTidbits.com is shown. I think Flagstaff could be in the 10 inch range by day 10. This does not necessarily mean that 10 inches will be present on December 3, or anytime between now and then. Also, the general disclaimer about variations with altitude and particular terrain producing more or less precipitation apply.
