    Thought everyone would like to see what the forecasters are saying about this winter. Found the web site at:

    2003-2004 Winter Outlook (Dec-Feb)

    Abstract

    The winter months of 2003-2004 across the central, Midwestern and Northeastern U.S. are forecast to be dominated by a pattern of below to near normal temperatures and near to above normal precipitation, or snowfall. The current forecast takes into account the expectations for near-normal sea surface temperature patterns, or neutral El-Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), an Artic Oscillation (AO) pattern dominated by a negative cycle, and a neutral effect from the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) throughout the winter season.

    The increased probabilities of below to near normal temperatures across the northern half of the U.S., east of the Rockies, will create a greater demand for natural gas and heating oils, as above normal heating demand occurs throughout the winter season. The potential for near to slightly above normal precipitation, or snowfall, will also impact municipalities throughout these locations, as demand for salt and other anti-ice road treatments is likely to increase.
