Last winter I comforted myself with the thought that we would never again have a winter as cold with as much snowfall. Loudoun County students missed 14 days of school!

Mid-Atlantic: The Mid-Atlantic could even see a snowier winter than last winter and likely experience well-below average temperatures.

This will likely be a wetter-than-average winter for the Mid-Atlantic, and this region will likely feel the effects of low pressure systems bombing off the East Coast. This area will probably be impacted by several storms this season and may even feel the effects of a pre-season storm that may try to develop.
Most of the south will have below average temperatures and more snow:
