What to pack for the snowiest place on earth? A shovel, perhaps. Tire chains. And some very fat skis.
The signs are strengthening that the world is heading into a return of the El Nino weather phenomenon.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts that La Nina will be responsible for a nasty winter in some areas of the United States.
Sharp swings in temperature and rain or snowfall are likely this coming winter, with a threat of heavy lake-effect snows and Nor'easters, according to the NOAA.
With the absence of both La Niña and El Niño weather patterns, the 2000-2001 winter forecast calls for a "normal" season, promising plenty of snow this winter.
These forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (N.O.A.A.) call for a return to near normal temperatures and precipitation after a series of previous record warm winters.
La Nina's back, but she's not the same little girl as last year, so the snow forecast looks to be a little different.
