For those in the general Buffalo area here is our long range forecast from the Old Farmers Almanac:

ANNUAL WEATHER SUMMARY: November 2009 to October 2010

Winter will be about a degree colder than normal, on average, despite a number of mild periods. The coldest periods will occur in the second week of December, early to mid-January, mid- to late January, and mid-February. Precipitation and snowfall will be below normal in the east and above normal in the west. Watch for a snowstorm around Thanksgiving, with other snowy periods in early and late December, late January, mid-February, and mid-March.

April and May will be warmer and drier than normal, with an early-season hot spell in mid-May.

Summer will be cooler than normal, with slightly below normal rainfall. The hottest periods will be in mid- to late June and mid- and late July.

September and October will be warmer than normal, with below-normal rainfall in the east and above-normal rainfall in the west.

Interesting that it says nothing about Nov. This is the warmest Nov I can remember. Last year we had snow by this time and it didn't leave until April!

RE: Long Range Weather Forecast

Somewhere on the site I did read that we could get a snowstorm around Thanksgiving. I sure hope not as I am actually enjoying this delayed cold weather. I still have tropicals on the front porch.
