AccuWeather: Nation Should Prepare for Severe Winter

The country should brace for a tough winter, says AccuWeather, with an early arrival of the polar vortex in the Northeast.

Larger cities such as New York and Philadelphia will likely see warmer temperatures in September, but the polar vortex may make short, sporadic visits, the forecast says.

"The vortex could slip at times, maybe even briefly in September for the Northeast," AccuWeather forecaster Paul Pastelok said. "There could be a significant shot of chilly air that comes across the Great Lakes region and into the interior Northeast sometime in mid- to late September."

The Plains and Rockies will see even colder blasts. There will be more snow than normal with colder temperatures, AccuWeather says.

In the South, there will be fewer Atlantic hurricanes, but more severe storms associated with the weather phenomenon known as El Nino.

El Nino should also bring drought relief to Texas and Arizona, but California is not expected to get as much rain. The extreme drought conditions there have brought on water restrictions statewide as well as wildfire threats.
