Finally got my copy of the Old Farmers Almanac. Here's what it states for the North East:

Summary: In some ways, this winter will be like the last one, with above-normal temps through most of the season. But storms that missed us last winter will hit us this winter, bringing above-normal precipitation and snowfall. Expect the heaviest snow in January and February across the north and in February and March across the south. Watch for a major blizzard in the second week of February.

7-12 Sprinkles and flurries.
13-15 Warm, rain.
16-19 Mild, dry.

23-26 Snow north, showers south.
27-31 Cold, dry

The one for the Northeast was for ME, NH, VT, MA, RI and CT.

Here's what it says for the northern great plains - great lakes area which includes central and northern WS, and northern MI, all of SD and ND, and western MT and WY.

Summary: Temps this winter will be about 4 deg above normal, on average. Most of December and January will be mild, with cold weather in late December and the first half of February. Precipitation will be below normal in the east and near normal in the west, with well below-normal snowfall throughout. The snowiest periods will occur in mid-November, mid to late January, late February, mid-March, and mid-April, but there will not be any big snowstorms.

DEC 2002
1-6 Sunny, seasonable.
7-11 Sunny, mild.
12-13 Flurries.
14-18 Sunny, mild.
19-21 Flurries.
22-27 Cold, flurries.
28-31 Sunny, mild.

JAN 2003
1-6 Sunny, mild.
7-15 Mild, flurries.
16-24 Turning colder, show showers.
25-31 Seasonable, flurries.

FEB 2003
1-8 Cold, flurries.
9-12 Sunny, very cold.
13-19 Sunny, becoming warm.
20-24 Cold, snow.
25-28 Flurries.

MAR 2003
1-6 Sunny, seasonable east; cold, flurries west.
7-12 Flurries, cold.
13-19 Snow north, sunny south.
20-22 Sunny east, snow showers west.
23-27 Sunny, then showers.
28-31 Rain and wet snow.

Well, there you go. Doesnt' sound great, but not a washout. Of course you've got to take this crap with a grain of salt. I just hope we all get BLASTED with snow!

Hey Tfin 70,
I don't need a complete break down by month, but how is it looking overall for North Dakota? I have heard it is suppose to be better than last year. I have my fingers crossed. Thanks

All I can say is if we get another winter like last year there will be a ton of aftermarket companies out of business, probably including us. No snow means no riding, and no riding means no buying, no buying means I can't pay my bills, You get the point I think. Everyone needs to pray every night and do a snowdance everymorning. I hate plowing snow, but it beats sitting on 500 silencers that don't sell cause there is no snow to plow outta the yard.

I don't use the brakes until I see God, and I am never wrong. I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
