As promised, here is the monthly update of the seasonal forecast for Hilton Head.

The colder winter which was forecasted in August is less likely to materialize, as El Nino conditions have not yet developed in the Pacific. While an El Nino winter is still forecasted by dynamical models, it is not expected to be strong. Above average temperature are still predicted for the summer of 2013.

So here is my temperature forecast for 2013 in Hilton Head (issued Sept. 20th, 2012):

Jan-May: average
Jun-Sep: warm (above average)
Oct: average

These are **average** forecasted conditions for each month, (compared to typical temperature for the month). Even when the forecast is correct, weather on individual days can be quite different from the average.

Here's one of my favorite pictures from our first trip to HHI in April 2011. The girls were 5 and 7 at the time. They'd been scouring the tide pools every day, trying to find a starfish. Finally...Success!! Two in the same tidepool!



We're headed back in just over 6 months and praying that our waitlist for Easter Sunday comes through. We have a cash reservation for Saturday, waitlisted for Sunday and then a points reservation for Monday-Thursday nights. We do have a cash reservation for Sunday so we do not face being homeless for a night, but it is going to cost us about $500. If that waitlist comes through, we save the money AND it only costs 25 points.

Normally, we book a 1BR but we invited my parents this year and they accepted. We're leaving Michigan on Friday (April 29) and staying in Gatlinburg, TN. Then on to HHI on Saturday! My parents have never been to HHI and my dad is really looking forward to doing some golfing. Both of my parents love to camp so I think that the theme of HHI will really appeal to them.

I'm in. We will be there April 7th - 12th in a 2BR villa. This is a return trip for me, but the first trip for DH and another couple we are traveling with. I absolutely fell in love with the island last October. I can't wait to go back. I also can't wait to see Savannah again and we will be spending a night in Charleston on the way home.

For those of you are contemplating a Savannah visit - do it. It is literally a 45 minute drive from the resort and there is free parking at the visitor center. There are also a number of ways to explore the city and most of them depart from the visitor center.

Toss a coin!

The current rationale for the forecast is this:

1) a mild El Nino over the winter is forecasted. El Nino conditions are linked to colder temperatures in the southeast US (in particular for Florida) and warmer temperatures in the northeast US. Hilton Head would likely behave like Florida in a strong El Nino year, but is difficult to predict in a mild El Nino year. So we don't really know for this winter.

2) For summer there has been a good trend of above average weather for a number of years, so it is safe to bet that this will continue.

Now end of March is between the two seasons. Truth is we don't know. You'll need to wait at least until the next update!
