Winter 2010-11 Forecast is Looking Good!
« on: December 03, 2010, 08:23:13 pm »
The Environment Canada 3-month winter forecast for temperatures are looking real good!   Below normal temperatures!   Wuuhoo, COLD is good!     Makes good ice, good dry snow, and extends the snow and sled hauling season.

The December – February forecast is showing the central and west parts of Canada to be "below normal" temps.  Unfortunately the northeast is showing "above normal"...but...




...But the January – March forecast is showing almost all of Canada to be "below normal".  Yes!   That's what I have been waiting for.  Bring it on!


 

Hopefully this forecast extends into Alaska and down into the US northern states too.  Hope everyone has their gear in shape and is starting to get out.   Looking forward to lots of photo trip reports, and hopefully some videos!

"I firmly believe that far from hurting the planet, the growing knowledge of Bushcraft is helping our natural world. When we employ bushcraft skills, it may seem as though we are consuming natural resources.  But of course, the more we learn about the trees, the plants, the animals around us, the more we respect them. The more we respect them, the more we cherish them, the more we nurture and take care of them. That is the underlying principle of Bushcraft.

What a great site, Thanks Hoop.  For the US I found the following. 



It looks like everyone gets either below average or normal.  No above average temperatures for any of the northern states.

Here is the site for anyone who is interested: http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/seasonal.php?lead=1
