• The late autumn / early winter months are expected to get off to a cold start – with the best possibility of early season snow during the last ten days of November through the first half of December
• Much of the eastern half of the nation is expected to see temperatures average well below normal during the vast majority of the winter as a whole, continuing through at least February
• The heart of the cold anomalies will be found across the Interior Northeast & Ohio Valley early on before likely shifting westward toward the Upper Midwest / Northern Plains during the second half of winter
• Generally variable temperatures are expected across the Intermountain West – with readings likely averaging above normal closer to the coast across the Pacific Northwest
• Although liquid precipitation is expected to average below normal for the Ohio Valley & Midwest, similar years featured snowfall close to or even slightly above normal
• A combination of cold temperatures and a favorable storm track should result in above average snowfall for much of the Eastern Seaboard – with the biggest storm threat during the first half of the season
• The Southeast will see an active pattern – increasing their odds of significant snow and/or ice events
