Blue Mountain will have an interesting winter with most of the snow coming from either a weak El Nino or an active Southern Jet or both. We at liveweatherblogs think the southern Jet stream could be the key to a few very big snowstorms this winter.
The timing is key this entire winter with the cold outbreak and additional moisture from the south that could bring 2-4 nor'easters to the Lehigh Valley. 1 or 2 of those nor'easter will be on the fringe of Blue Mtn.
The set-up above would make for a banner year at Blue Mtn. so combining the two jets is where we need to be come this winter. El Nino or La Nina? Not sure where we want to put that just yet with most of of the models leaning down the middle on La Nana.
Take a look at the chart below and see a slight trend to the El Nino side so yeah it's early in the game but things will change for sure.
