Kammerer’s outlook was particularly wintry, calling for 17-23 inches of snow, more than twice CWG’s forecast. He also expects well below normal temperatures – compared to CWG’s relatively mild outlook.

“…on the whole I think you will need your coat a lot more than you did last year,” Kammerer says. “I also think you will need your snow shovel!”

Hill calls for near normal temperatures and snowfall.

“… we will finally have, at least, an average snowfall this winter of 10 to 18 inches and temperatures at or only fractionally above average,” Hill says.
