Upstate New York, as well as New England states, will be among the hardest hit by the 26 snowstorms projected winter 2022-2023.
Each year, The Weather Channel names winter storms, taking into consideration whether their reach would impact an estimated two million people.
The 26 storms were named as: Alejandra, Beck, Carli, Diaz, Elliott, Fernando, Gael, Hudsoon, Iggy, Jimenez, Kassandra, Leona, Mara, Nova, Olive, Piper, Quest, Ricardo, Sage, Taylor, Uriel, Vanessa , Wayne, Xar, Yvetter and Zariah.
The names of blizzards exclude current Atlantic hurricane names and the eastern Pacific on the National Hurricane Center’s lists for the next six years, it reports.
The names of particularly deadly hurricanes were removed from the list, which is ordered alphabetically, taking into account the criteria of the National Weather Service for issuing warnings.
The report also includes possible phenomena that reach at least 400,000 kilometers or are slightly larger than the state of Montana.
The Weather Channel compiles the list of snow storms since the winter of 2014-2014, when it listed 19.
Last season it was anticipated that there would be 26 snowstorms, but in the end there were 20, some of which affected the central zone of the United States. and the north of the West coast.
Some snow storms are recorded even between March and May as happened with Xylia in March 2021.
In New York one of the biggest storms occurred in March 2022.
This year, La Niña will also determine winter weather in the US with wildly changing temperatures.
