Shot In The Dark Forecasts: April 2011
While it's still March, I wanted to get the April forecast in now. Before I do that though, I'll give a quick update on the March forecast.
If you recall, the outlook for the month involved snowfall compared to average. Below are the snowfall totals for the month so far, with monthly average in parenthesis.
Albany: 6.6 (10.9)
Binghamton: 20.2 (14.2)
Buffalo: 4.1 (12.4)
Rochester: 8.0 (16.6)
Syracuse: 14.1 (18.8)
Right now, only Binghamton is over their monthly average. I need at least 2 more to do the same to get the On Target spot, with all four meaning a Bull's Eye prediction.
Now on to April's outlook. I believe that the snow machine is coming to an end. There will be snow this week (more on that tomorrow!), but I believe that will be the final push. With that in mind, I'm giving a range for how this season will rank for each city at the end of April.
Bull's Eye: All five GSB cities are within the given ranges.
On Target: Three or four are in the given ranges.
Complete Miss: Two or fewer are in the given ranges.
Happy Spring everyone! Be sure to check out the SITD forecast over on Golden Snow Globe as well.
