Get ready for a winter that will be marked by frequent storms and possible above-normal snowfall, according to a new winter forecast released by AccuWeather.com on Sunday.
Most of last winter's snowfall in the area came from a few heavy-hitting storms. But this coming winter, more frequent storms will last into the early or middle part of spring, AccuWeather.com said.
"I think the Northeast is going to see more than just a few, maybe several, systems in the course of the season," AccuWeather Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said.
It will also be colder, AccuWeather said, with the temperature averaging 3-5 degrees lower than last winter and the region will total a below-normal number of subzero days, too.

The Farmer's Almanac, which was launched in 1818, takes a different view, calling for a “numbing, chilled-to-the-bone, penetrating cold and snow filled” winter for much of the eastern U.S.
