WINTER WX. Will you be waiting for ice, or fishing on it come the end of December? Winter witchcraft models…er, I mean, forecast models…are hitting the web with all sorts of predictions, which probably aren’t any more accurate than the Old Farmer’s Almanac (read only for fun – they got most of Oct wrong). A weak El Nino is the general consensus, which means about normal conditions for ND, perhaps a bit drier and warmer than average for winter.
