LRC and what it means for not only our winter but also our spring

It's LRC week and for weather enthusiasts, this is the week that starts the FIRST cycle of the LRC starts. What is the LRC? This is a relatively NEW forecasting technique to forecast long term weather using a "cycling" method. The "cycle" starts out around Oct 6th and lasts anywhere between 30 and 60 days. Last years "cycle" was 46 days. Here's how it works.....there is a pattern that sets up each fall and it continuously "cycles" through the winter/spring/summer into the following fall. It's a MAJOR piece to long term forecasting and has proven 70 to 80% accurate. Gary Lezak who discovered the LRC accurately predicted 5 of the hurricanes in the Gulf 7 months in advance using his LRC method. Don't believe it? Don't believe IN it? what the weather will be like in YOUR area over the next 30 to 60 days.....if it's stormy....expect an active winter/spring. Stay tuned...... Side note: We will have Gary on our show Nov. 17th to get his thoughts on the LRC upcoming winter for the northern plains. More details to follow.
