The seasonal forecasts from NOAA for this winter have so far been fairly accurate, which gives us reason to remain optimistic about the next few months. We’ve been feeling the effects of La Nina, with colder than average temperatures and less snow for the first part of winter. However, for the remainder of the season, the forecast is for higher than average snowfall, which will balance out the winter.
And while Summit County has been on the dry side so far, the good news is that the statewide snow pack is still about average for now. So, if the predictions are accurate, we should finish up the last half of the season with some really great spring snow, and a solid snow pack going into next summer.
No matter what, we are so grateful to live and work in such a beautiful place!
