Winter outlook: we'll see what happens

Here's the full report.

How did the winter of 2013-2014 stack up compared to last year's forecast? Temperature wise, not so good, especially east of the Rockies.  Several states in the mid and upper Mississippi River valley and upper Midwest were in the Top 10 for coldest winters on record.
