BRACE YOURSELVES…WINTER IS COMING! What to Expect from the 2019-2020 Winter Outlook

By Carport Central   |   Posted In: Prefab Metal Buildings, Snowfall in the Southeast



Back in October, several weather prognosticators released their early predictions for the 2019-2020 winter season. At that point, many were calling for temperatures to be near the seasonal average in most locations, and that we’d receive below-average snowfall across much of the country. But meteorologists will tell you that making an accurate long-range winter forecast in October is very hard to do, since so many variables are still in play.

Fast-forward to now, and the winter forecast is starting to come into clearer focus. Daniel Huffman of expects to see many areas receive higher-than-average snowfall, including the Northeast, the upper and central Midwest, and the upper Southeast.

Folks around the Great Lakes tend not to be phased by these long-range forecasts, since they pretty much always expect to receive the worst that winter has to throw at them. But when someone suggests that parts of the Southeast could even potentially receive above-average snowfall … well, that’s front page news!

And Southeast Weather Alerts isn’t the only organization to be speaking such winter nonsense. Closer to home in North Carolina, trusted Fox 8 chief meteorologist Van Denton has been singing a similar tune for his 2019-2020 winter forecast. He predicts that the NC Triad area could possibly see around 16 inches of snow for the season. That may not sound like a lot to someone in Buffalo, NY, but that’s about double the amount of snowfall we typically get in these parts. For some Southern ears, these tidings sound glorious; for others, them there’s fightin’ words!

It may not be time to stockpile your bread and milk just yet, but it is time to make your plans for how you intend to store and protect your vehicles and outdoor items. And if it’s a metal carport, garage, barn, workshop, or warehouse you need, nobody takes better care of you than the team at Carport Central, and we serve all or part of 48 states! We’d like to get to Alaska and Hawaii too (in fact, we’d REALLY like to get to Hawaii 😀), but we just haven’t figured out a practical way to serve those areas as of yet…

Depending on your particular location in the U.S., it may be too late for us to be able to install your custom building before winter officially starts on December 21. The good news is that, other than taking a Christmas break, our fabrication and installation teams work right through the winter (weather permitting). What does that mean for you? It simply means the sooner you place your building order, the sooner we’ll be able to get it out to you! Oh, and did we mention? Delivery and installation are INCLUDED with your purchase!
