Love snow? You’ll likely be in luck this winter but you may have to wait until around February to see a whole lot of snowflakes.
The East likely will see temperatures just a bit above average in December and January but February will “be favorable” for big snowstorms and nor’easters along the East Coast, according to the 2013-14 winter forecast released Wednesday by forecasting firm AccuWeather.
Meteorologist Jack Boston predicted the West could see a cold and snowy beginning to the winter but wrapping up a bit warmer than average – opposite of the East Coast.
The Southeast and Gulf Coast are expected to see warmer than average winters with the northern and central regions seeing above-average amounts of snow.
The Farmers' Almanac released in August predicted a colder-than-normal winter 2013 for more than half of the United States, including a nor'easter due right around the beginning of February when the first Super Bowl held outdoors is scheduled for Feb. 2 at the Meadowlands in New Jersey.
