Winter starts slow, but cold & snow on the way, expert says

>> MORE COLDER OUTBREAKS, MORE
OPPORTUNITIES FOR SNOW STORMS
HERE ALONG THE EAST COAST. HARVEY: DID THAT GET YOUR
ATTENTION? DR. JUDAH COHEN, DIRECTOR OF
SEASONAL FORECASTING AT
ATMOSPHERIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL
RESEARCH IN LEXINGTON, SAYS MANY
SIGNS ARE POINTING TO COLD,
SNOWY CONDITIONS THIS WINTER , EVENTUALLY. >> THE THING I THINK I’M MOST
WELL KNOWN FOR IS SIBERIAN
SNOWCOVER EXTENT DURING THE
MONTH OF OCTOBER. IT WAS ABOVE NORMAL, I THINK I
WAS THE FIFTH HIGHEST ON RECORD
.
HARVEY: DR. COHEN’S BELIEVES THE
AMOUNT OF SNOWCOVER OVER ASIA
AND WESTERN EUROPE CAN BE A PREDICTOR FOR HOW HARSH THE
WINTER CAN BE HERE
BUT THERE ARE MANY OTHER
INDICATORS HE LOOKS TO AS WELL. >> I DO THINK THE NORTH PACIFI
OCEAN TEMPERATURES COULD PLAY A
BIG ROLE IN THIS UPCOMING
WINTER. HARVEY: REMEMBER THE BLOB? IT WAS AN AREA OF MUCH WARMER
THAN NORMAL WATER TEMPERATURES
OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTH
AMERICA DURING THAT BITTER COL
WINTER OF 2013-14. >> I THINK THOSE WARM
TEMPERATURES LED TO RIDGING OVER
— RIDGING AND TROUGHING OVER US
AND BROUGHT A LOT OF COLD AIR. HARVEY: DR. COHEN THINKS THIS
WINTER MIGHT GET OFF TO A SLOW
START BUT MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME
LATER IN THE WINTER, AS WE AWAIT
A DISTURBANCE OF THE POLAR
VORTEX, WHICH COULD MAKE FOR A COLD JANUARY AND FEBRUARY. >> IT TAKES ABOUT FOUR TO SIX
WEEKS TO DISRUPT THE POLAR
VORTEX. LEADING INTO THE DISRUPTION OF
THE POLAR VIORTEX, YOU TEND TO
BE AND THEN, AFTER THE POLAR
VORTEX IS DISRUPTED, YOU TEND TO
BE COLD FOR ANOTHER FOUR TO SIX
WEEKS. >> I SEE LEADING TO A CRESCENO
OF A MUCH BIGGER POLAR VORTEX
DISRUPTION WITH MUCH LONGER
LASTING IMPACTS ON OUR WEATHER. I DID COMPUTE THE SNOWFALL
FORECAST AND IT CAME IN AT 59
INCHES. MORE THAN LAST YEAR, NOT AS MUCH
AS TWO YEARS AGO
HARVEY: SOMEBODY HAS AN
OPPORTUNITY TO GET AWAY FROM THE
NEW ENGLAND WINTER FOR A MONTH
— WINTER, SHOULD THEY PICK DECEMBER, JANUARY, FEBRUARY OR
MARCH? >> I’D SAY BETWEEN MARTIN LUTHAR
KING AND PRESIDENTS WEEKEND. MARIA: LET’S PUT IN OUR TIME OFF
RIGHT NOW. HARVEY: IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE
THAT 59 INCHES, THAT IS ABOUT 15
INCHES ABOVE AVERAGE. AGAIN, THINKS THAT POLAR
FORECASTS — HE THINKS THAT
POLAR VORTEX DISRUPTION WILL
TAKE PLACE IN DECEMBER AND IT
TAKES 4-6 WEEKS FOR THE EFFECTS. MARI I LOVE YOU GUYS TOGET
