I have been doing a lot of model watching and looking at our past weather trends lately as I try to get ready for our 2012 - 2013 winter forecast. It's such an iffy thing to forecast. However I like to look into it and give everyone a rough idea as to what we can expect. I have been looking into the El- nino, and La-nina. The NAO, and AO, models. I've been looking into the CPC and past weather trends, as well as long range GFS models. I have even been doing a lot of reading up on weather decisions regarding these weather models, etc.
So much to go over when trying to forecast a season ahead. So stay tuned. I will try to have a taste of what we can expect very soon.
