The western Pacific ocean has been and continues laying the ground work for a very stormy winter for the eastern U.S. This doesn't mean the western states don't get their share, but as intense snow events go look out eastern U.S. The weather pattern is already beginning it's pooling of unseasonable frigid tempatures. Look for a record warm winter for Florida, and record cold winter for Montana. The battle grounds of a very warm Gulf of Mexico and bitterly frigid Arctic air will hammer it out over the eastern half of the U.S. from now until May. This will become the winter that will be rated as the worse winter in U.S. history. This will become very danderous for many people. I just want to get the word out. Thank you

As stated...let's move the discussion about this winter into the 'Long Range Forecast' topic.

Doubtful that record snow depths will occur anywhere but perhaps if a foot of snow falls in Atlanta.. or 2 inches in New Orleans.

This will be a winter where everyone gets all up in a huff about how "nasty it's going to be" and it ends up being slightly colder and snowier than normal ON the eastern Seaboard and in the deep south while the other 85% of the nation sees warmer and drier than normal weather..

The Accuweather forecast for the upper midwest? "Less cold and less snowy than last year" as if last year was some record breaker. Essentially last winter was a bit below normal temperature wise with average to slightly above average snowfall. This winter will then be warmer and drier than normal and continue a string of warm, dry winters unprecedented in the Minneapolis records going back to 1820.
