The 2020 -2021 Winter weather forecast from the Farmers Almanac has been released. The forecast is largely predicting the typical weather patterns associated with La Nina conditions. But will it be accurate?
Our favorite meteorologist, Denver’s Chris Tomer, has weighed in on his thoughts of the 2020 -2021 forecast from the Farmers Almanac.
I think the Farmers’ Almanac is on the right track. I focus on Colorado and the West primarily as a meteorologist, so I like to be more detailed.
Let’s compare forecasts. The Farmers’ Almanac labels Colorado with “Cold, Above Normal Snowfall”.
I would be more specific. I only think the Northern Mountains will be colder, windier, and snowier than normal.
The Central Mountains look fairly normal to me. The Southern Mountains may be drier and warmer than normal this Winter.
Some of the most consistent snowfall this Winter for skiing favors Steamboat, Winter Park, Loveland, Berthoud Pass, RMNP, and Cameron Pass.
What about Denver? The Farmers’ Almanac says, “Cold, Above Normal Snowfall”. I think it is half right. I’m forecasting colder and windier than normal, with normal snowfall (about 55 inches at DIA). – kdvr.com
