Leading Forecaster Judah Cohen Featured on Washington Post Blog

Judah Cohen, MAPP-funded researcher and director of seasonal forecasting for Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), a Verisk Analytics company, was featured in a Q&A post on the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang blog. In the article, Cohen relates the amount of snow cover and its rate of advance in Siberia in October to temperatures during winter in North America. The more snow in Siberia and the faster it increases he suggests, the colder it's likely to be in the eastern U.S. This October, snow came down fast and furious in Siberia and, thus, Cohen is bullish about a harsh winter for the eastern U.S. Read the entire blog post and view the most recent U.S. winter outlook on Climate.Gov
