“The crucial areas of the Northeast look to be in a major battle zone, with the I-95 cities probably 1/2 to 1 degree above normal temperatures with near-normal snowfall, much different and much less severe than last winter, but I don't think they get a free pass. The front part of winter (Nov. 15-Dec. 15) looks normal to below, then a major January thaw may engulf much of the nation this year… similar to last year, but when winter comes back it will be worse in the Plains and Great Lakes than over the South.
Snowfall will run above normal in the Great Basin and the Northwest, the northern Plains, the Great Lakes, and most of the Midwest north of I-70. Near-normal snow and ice should occur between I-40 and I-70, and in the I-95 corridor. Southwestern mountains and the Deep South will have less-than-normal snow, though ice events into the Deep South, as far south as I-20, are possible.”
Thank god my area going to see good winter:p
