Winters of 2012, 2013, 2014 Could be Frigid

AccuWeather.com Long Range Expert Joe Bastardi believes there is a significant chance for particularly frigid winters in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 into 2014-2015.

Bastardi said these winters could be similar to winters of the late 1970s.

He said, "While the most consistent of the cold is to the north, severe bouts of cold deep into Texas and Florida would be capable of affecting agriculture more so than we've seen in that last 20 years or so."
A combination of factors that parallel the precursors to historically cold winters is leading Bastardi to this forecast.

He said, "We have a cold Pacific now. We had a La Nina, El Nino, then a stronger La Nina [similar to the cycle] that happened in the early to mid '70s that set up the winters of the late '70s."

Indications over the long haul (looking at temps for the past million years, not just the past 20 years) are that we're on the slide into another ice age, and can expect more of this...
