******* WIINTER OUTLOOK 2014 - 2015 ******* Another Harsh Winter. Warm Oceans =Cold Continents. I'm forecasting another wicked Winter in the central and eastern US, following last year's cold Winter. This time, a "split-flow" and active storm track will create a few periods where even the Deep South can get into ice and Snow. There's a lot of reasons I went with this kind of setup, and pointed those out at the site. Western Ridging, Eventual Greenland and Eastern Canada blocking should force very large Continental Arctic Highs back down into the United States, again. Two main storm tracks are likely, one through the lower Midwest, the other from the Gulf of Mexico up the East Coast. This type of pattern was common in the 1960s, the late 1970s, early 1980s and in 2009/10...so if you recall those years, you will get a stark reminder of the Wrath of Ol' Man Winter.

First ones in the region!
