Cliff Harris Predicts Winter 2013-14

Despite forecasts of "an extremely snowy winter in the North Country" by the Old Farmers Almanac and other weather prognosticators, Randy Mann and I see only slightly above normal snowfall this winter across the region since we are now in a calmer 'La Nada' sea-surface event following the demise of the recent chilly and wet 'La Nina' in the Pacific Ocean west of South America. For this reason, along with the fact that we're still seeing above normal numbers of sunspots, solar activity, we are calling for between 10 percent and 20 percent more snowfall than usual for the fast-approaching winter of 2013-14 across the Inland Empire/Cliff Harris, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: What kind of winter do you expect in 2013-14?
