East Coast may be in for a very cold winter

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.
