Winter '09 / '10 - WSI - October Update

Dr. Todd Crawford - seasonal forecaster:
"The WSI winter forecast for December through February shows below-normal temperatures across the eastern and southern United States, with above-normal temperatures across the northwestern half of the country.

""Recent changes in Pacific Ocean temperatures along with other factors, such as reduced solar flux, have combined to produce a favorable environment for a cold winter in the eastern U.S. this year...

""Confidence in the cold winter forecast will increase further if snow cover builds rapidly at higher latitudes during October. Our current forecast indicates a relatively benign start to winter, followed by a rather active and cold January and February."

"In December, WSI sees the monthly breakdown as:
Northeast - Warmer than normal

"In January, WSI forecasts:
Northeast - Colder than normal"
