    NOAA published its long range forecast for the continental United States
    and they predict a warmer than usual winter for the area between the
    Rockies and the Eastern Seaboard. They are a little hesitant about what
    the weather is going to do in other parts of the country this winter, though.
    The problem is that the warm spot that they look for in the mid Pacific is
    sort of lukewarm, so they aren't really certain what way the weather will
    swing along the coasts. This has been a puzzler for the professionals trying
    to estimate temperature ranges on the air masses likely to be circulating
    overhead, driven by the jetstreams at both high and low altitudes. They
    are pretty sure about the relatively warm winter through the central states.
    How long winter like temperatures may hold this year is uncertain to them
    as well. Let's hope it all works out well for early June, eh? We are fated to
    live in interesting times, it seems.
