    Just remember, we will see what actually happens. I do hope drought states get rain but i don't want to see California "washed out".

    Sure hope that is accurate! I'd love to have cold and precip (especially if it takes the form of snow)!

    the maps contradict themselves; it tells colorado as being drier and warmer, yet very snowy???

    I agree w/ summerthyme. They can't make an accurate 24hr forecast.

    HOWEVER, I was just talking to someone this weekend about all the leaves on the ground, and some of them already changing color.
    Definitely not normal for this time of year in my area.

    I'm hoping it's not predictive of a bad winter!

    A local old wives tale says that the height of the mullien predicts the snowfall for the winter. The mullien is growing like wildfire. The one by the side fence is already 4' tall with a month of growing to go. I'd sure be thrilled to see a snowy winter.

    We will see...

    The deer are doing something they did back in 2008 and that was, eating plants they normally wouldn't go for such as my Impatiens, the spiders are out early and also the deer were eating stuff I sprayed the Deer Out on which they Never do unless we're getting a big snow in the future.

    It's not like the deer are dying of thirst either, I'm right on the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie river. The squirrels and chipmunks are storing things up already and being a boater, I know when a the season is coming to a close and that is when the yellow jackets go after the protein type foods. Well, I saw this type of behavior over in Chelan this last weekend and they were quite aggressive. I usually see this type of thing around mid to late Sept.

    A little side note...

    The fruit trees that line our roads up past North Bend, are heaving with fruit (free for the picking since they're on King Co. land. It's either a 10 ft. or 15 ft. easement from the edge of the road.) For those who want to pick fruit and berries, go through North Bend eastbound and keep going out of town, the road is lined on either side with wild fruit trees all the way up to the John Wayne trail. The blackberries have not been sprayed. Also plums for the taking when ripe on the south side of the road adjacent to Safeway off of exit 30. Going off eastbound I-90 and taking exit 27, drive past the Snoqualmie Casino and you'll go down the hill onto the flat area where the Tollgate farm is which is now owned by King Co. You will find on both sides of the road berries, heirloom apple trees and pear trees. The cherries have all been picked or eaten by the birds but they are there too... Oh and some hazlenut trees...

    Although son plans to go to philmont the week after Christmas, and middle son (with CF) plans on winter camp -- outdoors, living in a tent for a week.... guess they will have the opportunity to learn what a winter is really like... LOL

    There is a fellow in England by the name of Piers Cobyn who owns and runs Weatheraction.com and he does long range forecasts that are amazingly accurate.

    I tried reading his site, but it looks like you have to pay????
    If you can find something (especially about Texas), can you post the link???

    I'd love to see what he has to say!

    I just clicked it and he wants money to find out weather info. I certainly don't blame him but I don't have money to pay to find out winter predictions.... I hope we get plenty of rain and snow in OR, horribly dry since last winter.

    Yes he asks for a subscription fee and many do pay it, the MET in england hate this guy because he is not telling how he does it, but he spot on most of the time and sometimes he not off the mark by any more than a week and thats with a forecast two or three months in advance.

    What kind of prices? Being dirt poor I have little to no extra money.... but would love to know what he says about the Pacific Northwest and West Coast.

    We haven't had any really cold weather for several years so the bugs this summer are awful! Hoping for some exceedingly cold temperatures this winter.

    Ok so it means a wetter winter for TX and the south. I am ok with that since texas is again in drought.

    I'm noticing this here in Florida! On the way back from Panama City Beach Saturday, I commented to my wife how many trees I was seeing dropping leaves already. Never seen that before. Although, it could be from all of this ridiculous precip we have been having for the past 2 months.

    Pretty normal up here in Maine except for the cooler nights already. It's just the end of July and we are getting 50 at night. We have had a ton of rain this summer. Got an inch in just one hour night before last. I am loving not having to water the garden so much this year but after a very cold/rainy June my poor tomatoes are in need of at least one more month a warm weather. Luckily I planted the early type maters again this year. I have lots of blossoms and lots of small maters out there. I may have to build up the side on the bed again and cover them all again this year to get enough to can up. We still have a couple jars left from last year's crop. They were SO good, hubby said just plant those maters. Well, I planted some of my Sun Gold guys too just because they are so sweet. I want to do up some salsa with them. We like it mild and sweet and those will be perfect. Unfortunately they are just getting started now. The bed they are in doesn't get enough sun due to trees to the sw of the bed. Thinking I need one more bed SOMEWHERE to make up for that one. That one is going to be more strawberries next year. I have a ton of runners coming on. As soon as they produce a baby with roots, into the ground it goes, lol.

    Guys... on the trees losing leaves... it's stress. Up here where there are lots of hardwoods, they generally start turning color very early in a very dry year. If it's really wet, they often don't color up much, but will start dropping leaves early.

    It generally doesn't have anything to do with the upcoming weather, but instead, with what they've been experiencing (or suffering!) in the current weather patterns.
