Predicting the Future of Snow

By Miguel Corredor

According to many websites this winter season is gonna have a La Nina effect. Meaning a cooling of the water in the equatorial Pacific that occurs at irregular intervals, causing a cooler temperature than usual. On the other side, El Nino, is warmer water temperatures making the temperature warmer.

Many people are wondering where all the snow is and when is it going to come, if it does. Well, let me tell you that having a La Nina season, it’s going to affect the snow by making it to come later in the season. La Nina usually bring a lot of snow do to the cooler temperatures, giving a lot of at champagne powder snow that everyone likes.

This information was gathered from  a couple of websites, but the main one was Almanac.com. This is a good website you should listen to because its has been a weather predictor since 1792. Also, they are 80% correct for most years and that’s pretty good for a prediction of the future.  They predict the weather forecasts from a secret formula that was devised by the founder of this Farmers Almanac, Robert Thomas. He believed that weather on Earth was influenced by sunspots, which are magnetic storms on the surface of the Sun.  

In conclusion the 2017-18 winter season is be pretty crappy at the beginning, but the snow should get really nice by the end. In my opinion I don’t really think weather predictions are very accurate, because weather is always changing, but from all the research I have done I predict that good snow is going to come in January, 2018. We are all waiting, so let it snow!
