Are the Tri Cities in for a Super Cold Winter?
I know you don't want to think about it, but Winter is Coming. Not that's not just a catchy Game of Thrones quote! If you were living in the Tri-Cities last year you know how CRAZY hot it was this time of year. Then winter was pretty mild. This year has been much cooler than in previous years. In fact, this is the coolest summer since 2011, and it's cooler than it was then. It got me thinking about winter and if there was any correlation between a hot summer and mild winters. In the past years where summer has been really hot, winter has been mild. But in the years summer was cooler, winter got COLD!
In 2009 and 2011 the temps on July 10 were 89.1 and 84.9. On December 10 of those years the temps were 24.1 and 26.6! This year on JUly 10th, the temp was 82. So it has me thinking we're in for another cold winter. What do you think? Are we in for a super cold winter, or do you think it will be mild? Take the poll and remember Winter is Coming.
