and: we have not seen anything like this yet in boston but a are digging out not too far away, in upstate new york. the question everyone's asking, how much snow can we expect this winter? maria there's good news and bad : news. harvey leonard and our winter weather guru break down the winter forecast. >> i think if there is an area that gets heavier snow, this weather will be in the northeast. will happen within the next few weeks. >> he is the director of seasonal forecasting at atmospheric and environmental research. this map predicts a challenging winter. >> there's a large change between the warm in the cold temperatures suggesting there is a active storm track in the area. harvey:: uses a number of factors that the extreme drought
11:16 pm
player during the winter. harvey: instead, a big contributor for us, how much snow is covering siberia during october. >> it was a big year. harvey: this is what it looked like on halloween. that area the third-largest measure in the last 40 years. here is why that is important. more snow cover means more cold air can build over siberia, creating this dome of cold, dense air. >> it breaking and that cold air spills out. harvey: you may remember one of those outbreaks next -- last winter setting records on #stay. the temperature plunged two minus nine with the windchill of -36. he thinks climate change could be a factor. >> the warm arctic decreases the sea ice but also makes more moisture available and we get these snow blitzes across siberia and there is where we
11:17 pm
it is all connected. harvey: his model predicts significant snowfall. >> a 75 inches in boston, that is a good 30 inches above normal. and: say what you just said. harvey: that is a model. the idea is he thinks we are probably going to have an above average snowfall. averages about 42 or 44. difficult this truly is, look at the variability. if you check out those winters, we had 81 inches in 2010 and 11. look what happened the following winter. only nine inches. the average is 44. and above the recordbreaker for he and last winter it was 36 inches back to below normal. we have tremendous variability here and that is because of where we are.
11:18 pm
lines and that makes a huge difference how the storms turnout. it will be interesting to follow as we go along. we may have an interesting situation in new england later this weekend. 20's in the 30's, we did recover to the 30's and 40's. five degrees below average but the month is running above average. i still feel it will be slightly above average when the month comes to an end. 34 right now, another cold nigh but not as strong as it was last night. it is coming down gradually. but it is cold. a lot of 20's are showing up and low 30's along the shoreline. makes it feel like 17 in worcester, 25 in boston. the windchill early tomorrow if you are stepping out, teens and low 20's. we'll -- we will improve because it will not be as windy. the actual temperature, 20's and
11:19 pm
less wind. the question is this little system, will it be able to produce any precipitation on thanksgiving? if it does it will be very light. and what form would it take question mark we will show you how this is likely to go. this is one computer model showing a little bit of light snow may be in the -- mainly in the western portion of the area. nothing happens until lunchtime, anything from boston south's light rain. the temperature will be above early and the best chance of that happening is along the north of the mass pike, there could be some snow, perhaps a coat or maybe happening some sl. there was to hills and the work shares could get a coat to an inch. that is what i see out of the system. the could be some slippery spots and a lot of you will be traveling to either football games or grandma's house. leader on thursday into thursday night, it will be damp at times, not heavy precipitation.
11:20 pm
northern and western areas, it may be just cold enough for little freezing drizzle oveig thursday night and first thing friday. friday looks like an overcast day that will be damp at times. this computer model showing some rain is coming through friday night. exiting saturday. as this exits a storm will start going offshore. if it gets its act together quick enough, it could pull moisture back and that would happen saturday night or sunday as colder air most likely idea would be up around northeastern mass or southern maine. that is something to follow for the end of the holiday weekend, that possibility and that is all it is. here's a hurricane, hurricane otto around costa rica. it is not the brightest of thanks giving weekends. any precipitation would be very light on things giving day.
11:21 pm
the big question is saturday night and sunday, whether there will be a change to snow or flurries or the redevelopment. stay tuned for all updates. ed: we always do. we are a captive audience.
