Readers react favorably to winter outlook, predict lots of snow


We’re going to accept contest submissions for another week. This contest is just for fun (bragging rights, no prizes), so please submit only once and have fun with it (go with your gut and/or where your research leads you, don’t let others overly influence you).

So far, the average snowfall predicted by readers (for Reagan National Airport): 22” - 8 inches more than the Capital Weather Gang. That number is probably skewed by some very high predictions, a few over 60”! As the chart above demonstrates, a large fraction of you think about 10-20” will fall - which is what our outlook suggests.

Keep reading for some of the reactions to the outlook!

Are you in the snow or anti-snow camp? Ideally, how much snow would you like to fall this winter?
