Winter '17 / '18 - Outlooks

Thread updated periodically as new outlooks and forecasts are issued from a variety of credible sources.

Judah Cohen (AER) via National Science Foundation
"The combination of cold and wet could result in an above normal snow season for parts of the northern U.S., including the large population centers of the northeastern U.S.
 
"... indicators suggest ... the polar vortex will break down later this winter, potentially unleashing an extended period of severe winter weather." (ED:  not necessarily over the Western Hemisphere)
