USA Today is reporting that the East Coast could shiver under a blanket of unusual cold this winter, according to forecasters."It could be one of the coldest (U.S. winters) in this decade, depending on what happens in the West," says Matt Rogers, a forecaster with the Commodity Weather Group, a consultancy with clients in the energy and agriculture industries. "We feel like we need to watch this particular winter closely."Temperatures could be 5% to 10% below normal, Rogers says. However, he and others also predicted a milder-than-usual winter across other northern states.Read the full report at USA Today's web site.
