Cold Winter Ahead for the Southeast?

According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the southeast US could be in for a chilly winter with a mixed bag of precipitation. The annual publications 2021-2022 Extended Weather Forecast notes that Winter will start gradually in January, trending towards colder conditions later in the month. However, the whole month will be stormy, especially along the Atlantic Seaboard where an active storm track will lead to a stretch of precipitation in all forms (rain, snow, sleet, and ice). February, on the other hand, is predicted to be a much quieter month, with an average of 57% fewer days of measurable precipitation compared to January in the eastern third of the country.
