This Winter Predicted To Be Milder Than Last Year

Official projections suggest this winter could be milder than last year. In the first official outlook of coming weather patterns, Mike Halpert of the NOAA's National Climate Prediction Center says the extreme cold and snow that hit the Midwest last year isn't likely to repeat itself. Early studies suggest it will be much drier, meaning less chance for extreme, long-lasting systems that linger over the Great Lakes.
