  1. We used to have a thread like this back in the early days of SledNH. Basically it's just a thread to post what the current conditions are where you are at. Currently 10° and dropping here in Island Pond, VT. The wind is howling and there are a few flurries in the air.
  2. el nino to give us fits.

    There is already a warm and wet prediction for the entire season on wmur due to el nino and it cause of western oceans warming.. Looks like rain south and ice storms in the north country for winter 2016. Bummer. Its for sure been a warm fall. Riding in southern will likely be scarce, and north will be minimal. After the last few good snow winters I guess were due for poor riding conditions south of the GNW.
  3. A lot of place in New England got their first snow of the season yesterday or today. We had of and on snow showers here in northern VT today with a high of 34° after a morning low of 22°. There was enough to show up on the snow map.
  4. Snow in the forecast

    Okay, so it's only snow showers, and only a 40% chance, and only at night, and only north of the notches. Still, it's a start. Pittsburg, NH weekend forecast Friday Night A chance of rain and snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 32. Chance of precipitation is 40%. Saturday A 40 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 41. Saturday Night A 30 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 23. Sunday Partly sunny, with a high near 35. Sunday Night Mostly cloudy, with a low around 19.
  5. Apparently a lot of people are having this issue this year. Anyone else feel it's worth E mailing BRP to try to get some kind of change for the future ? They advertise how light their sleds are then make you carry around extra weight in the form of ice. This year I've found it tough to keep from building up. I've heard a lot of attempted fixes but why should we spend our time and money to address their issue ? For what it's worth.
  6. weather sites and apps

    As we anxiously watch the colder temps freeze up water bars and lakes...and wait for more snow cover...I'm curious what sites and/or mobile apps people find the best, most accurate, most useful. I use (but i hate it), wunderground (not sure about it), weatherbug on my phone (like it a lot),, NWOA, and of course John's Weather page for specific 'Burg info. What do people like?
  7. Old Thumper and I just got back from a 68 mile ride this morning. The trails are insane, Freshly groomed and we put on the first tracks. We left at 7:30 am at -14 below zero and did not see another sled until we got back! Four moose slowed us down and there were a lot of moose nuggets and hoof prints on the trails. We just came back to get the ladies and head out for lunch in about another half hour. The weather is great for a good day of riding.
  8. I know the weather is a big part of our winter activities... no go. We all have the weather at our disposal on tv, cable, sat, radio, computer, and phone at a moments notice...right at our fingertips. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH...THIS IS A SNOWMOBILE FORUM NOT A WEATHER FORUM. We all want to know if there is enough to ride on or not. Let's see some pictures and videos and stories on riding, working on sleds, our usuall sled fun, etc. Let's give the weather a break until after the storm with snow totals. How about a snow totals post after each storm. We can't change the weather and "it is what it is". This is a great website and I enjoy ready the posts, posting my own, and the pictures and videos are great fun. Just my .02 and I think it needed to be said.

  10. U.S. Northeast May Have Coldest Winter in a Decade (Update2) Share | Email | Print | A A A By Todd Zeranski and Erik Schatzker Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Northeast may have the coldest winter in a decade because of a weak El Nino, a warming current in the Pacific Ocean, according to Matt Rogers, a forecaster at Commodity Weather Group. “Weak El Ninos are notorious for cold and snowy weather on the Eastern seaboard,” Rogers said in a Bloomberg Television interview from Washington. “About 70 percent to 75 percent of the time a weak El Nino will deliver the goods in terms of above-normal heating demand and cold weather. It’s pretty good odds.” Warming in the Pacific often means fewer Atlantic hurricanes and higher temperatures in the U.S. Northeast during January, February and March, according to the National Weather Service. El Nino occurs every two to five years, on average, and lasts about 12 months, according to the service. Hedge-fund managers and other large speculators increased their net-long positions, or bets prices will rise, in New York heating oil futures in the week ended Sep. 22, according to U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data Sept. 25. “It could be one of the coldest winters, or the coldest, winter of the decade,” Rogers said. U.S. inventories of distillate fuels, which include heating oil, are at their highest since January 1983, the U.S. Energy Department said Sept. 23. Stockpiles of 170.8 million barrels in the week ended Sept. 18 are 28 percent above the five-year average. Heating oil for October delivery rose 1.38 cents, or 0.8 percent, to settle at $1.6909 a gallon on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

  11. As posted on AccuGuess.... A Look to the Winter Bastardi predicts the current El Niño will fade over the winter and will probably not play as much of a role in the overall weather pattern as one would think during a typical El Niño year. The areas that will be hit hardest this winter by cold, snowy weather will be from New England through the Appalachians and mid-Atlantic, including North Carolina. Areas from New York City to Raleigh have gotten by the past two years with very little snowfall. This year these areas could end up with above-normal snowfall. While some parts of the Appalachians did have harsh winter weather in the form of ice last year, this winter could be one of the snowiest since 2002-03, when up to 80 inches fell in many places. Snowfall totals this year could reach between 50 and 100 inches. Last winter, the usage of salt was way up due to the number of ice storms. Salt supplies could be compromised again this year for state and local road crews that battle the winter weather. On the other hand, ski resorts could have a great year with plenty of powder for skiers. Bastardi adds that the overall weather pattern that has prevailed this summer is pointing to a winter very similar to that of 2002-03, when major cities on the East Coast had above-average snowfall. Expert Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity points out that in February of 2003, a major snowstorm paralyzed much of the Interstate 95 corridor, including New York City and Philadelphia. During the storm, airports were closed, roads were impassable, roofs collapsed and some schools were closed for a week, causing summer vacations to start late. The storm track that could develop this year will bring storms up the Eastern Seaboard. This type of storm track will differ from that of the past two years, when storms tended to take a track farther west from Texas into the Great Lakes. That track into the Great Lakes brought unseasonably mild weather to the major East Coast cities, keeping them on the more rainy side of the storms. The track this year right along the Eastern Seaboard would put the major cities on the cold, wintry side of the storms. A colder, snowier winter would mean an increase in energy bills, added snow removal efforts, more travel delays and extended school closures. The Midwest and central Plains, which have been hit hard the past two winters, may end up with a lack of snowfall this year. Places like Chicago, Omaha, Minneapolis and Kansas City may have below-normal snowfall and could even average a bit milder than past years. A warm and somewhat dry weather pattern is expected from the Pacific Northwest into the northern Plains. The typical barrage of winter storms that hit Seattle and Portland may not occur this winter and lead to below-normal precipitation. The below-normal precipitation predicted for the Pacific Northwest could have "extended and severe ramifications" on the economy in a region that relies heavily on winter precipitation, according to Expert Senior Meteorologist Ken Reeves. "A less stormy track through the Pacific Northwest, while on the surface may seem like a good thing, it is actually the opposite," Reeves said. "Winter snows supply water to the region throughout the year and also supply a significant portion of their power needs. About 70 percent of electric power generation in the Northwest comes from hydro sources." The Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, from Feb. 12 to 28 could be impacted by the lack of snow and cold weather this winter. A storm track into California and the Southwest means near-normal rainfall for Southern California. While some people across Southern California fear the El Niño will bring harsh storms to the region, the fading of the El Niño will lessen that risk and provide near-normal rainfall.
