NYC, Philly, DC: Winter 2012-2013 will be “Snow” Joke

Following a snow drought during winter 2011-2012, the mid-Atlantic and southern New England will get a snow dump this winter.

Above-normal snowfall is forecast for the major I-95 cities, including New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., during winter 2012-2013.

 “The I-95 cities could get hit pretty good. It’s a matter of getting the cold to phase in with the huge systems that we are going to see coming out of the southern branch of the jet stream this year,” Lead Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said.

The cold is expected to phase with the big storms during January and February with the potential for large snowstorms to make headlines and create travel headaches in the major cities.

    rest of virginia should be covered on coastal area, plus that will be a very cold and snowy spot and worse since it’s on the coast.

    Since when did Accuweather provide winter forecasts this early?
    Last years winter forecast came in October it was still blown.
