Snowfall Contest 2022-2023

Guess the seasonal snowfall for Boston, Worcester, Providence, and Hartford, to the nearest tenth of an inch (example 32.1).

Final guesses must be made by the end of the day on November 30 2022.

Good luck!

    Thank you, TK.

    My predictions (btw, Boston will get less snow this winter than Buffalo’s suburbs today and this weekend):

    Logan: 30.3 inches
    Worcester: 51.7 inches
    Hartford: 42.3 inches
    Providence: 26.7 inches

    Meteorological winter temps: 1.2F above average

    Thanks TK !

    Here are my snowfall guesses for this year (22-23).

    My guess is predicated on a consistent spreading of snow throughout astronomical winter. I don’t think it will be front-loaded.

    Logan: 66.3 inches
    Worcester: 81.4 inches
    Hartford: 58.3 inches
    Providence: 49.8 inches

    Meteorological winter temps: avg to 0.8F above average.

  3. Logan 35.6 inches
    Worcester 49.2 inches
    Hartford 45.3 inches
    Providence 38.1 inches
    Meteorological Winter 1.9F above normal

  4. Can I participate by just guessing for Boston – if so my guess will be 31.5 inches or less but I’ll just guess this . Harvey has a little bit higher but from different forecasts I’ve watched it all seems like there is a big IF or wildcard forecast if you will .

  5. Hello all,

    I am submitting my Snowfall guess and believe me that is all it is. I just don’t have a good vibe for this Winter, so here goes…

    Worcester: 36.7
    Providence: 22.1
    Hartford: 29.2

    Going low, perhaps a little reverse Psychology???

    So, I win even if I am wrong. 🙂

  6. Wanted to get my snow guess in before the deadline so here goes:

    Boston: 68.4″
    Worcester: 88.3″
    Providence: 54.2″
    Hartford: 68.4″

    I am going bigger this year. My gut says this is not going to be a just another repeat of the last two La Nina winters. We have some extensive early season North American snow cover, indications that La Nina is going to be weakening and less of a factor as we move on, and a potential good start to the winter with a strong -AO and -NAO setting up for at least the second half of December. While I highly doubt we will be seeing a consistent cold/snowy pattern for most of the winter, I think the adjacent warm Atlantic waters will fuel a few big east coast storms this season and as we all know, it only takes a few of those to jack up your seasonal snow totals.

    This was the basis for my snow guess last year (54.1″) which worked out well as Boston got one big late January storm that jacked the season total to above normal in what was an overall benign winter pattern. I think that happens again this season only we get into a more favorable winter pattern or two for longer. Will be fun to see how this one plays out!
