    The CPC has updated their long-range forecasts. The forecast for October-November-December is the first one to which I give any real credence. The bottom line: the next 3 months are going to be warmer than average with average precipitation.

    Yeah, I know. Frankly, I find the CPC has a better record of accuracy. YMMV. There is a lot of disagreement on what's going to happen over this Winter. Youtube is filled with conflicting forecasts. The big issue seems to be whether or not we're heading into another La Nina event, and what effect it is going to have.

    BTW: You realize you posted the WINTER forecast and not the Fall one, right?

    How many foggy mornings did we have in August. I lost count after the first like 8.

    Yes. I didn't see the fall.
    However, I have read that they have a better record than the CPC but not by much.

    You're most welcome.

    BTW: Just to give y'all some perspective, I looked up the average temps for 11/13 at Greater Cincinnati Airport: Low of 36 High of 57. So, what they're saying is we have a better than even chance that it'll be higher than that on the Opener. Precip? I tried to look it up. They'll give you averages for the month, but on a daily basis it's fuzzy.

    They’d have just a good chance predicting if my wife was going to be in the mood or not.

    It's going to be cold and dry tonight Main. Maybe light winds, depending on what's for supper.

    Hot tongue and cold shoulder, that's what's for supper.

    I can predict with very high range of accuracy just by putting my money on NO.
