Thanks to extensive research by a fellow weather enthusiast, it has been determined that the winter of 2011-2012 appears to have probabilities of being similar to the winter of 1995-1996.
Based on that research, I have pulled up some maps regarding the winter of 1995-1996.
Temperature Anomalies of winter of 1995-1996 compared to long term average
Precipitation wise, a strip of lower precipitation amounts existed from West Kentucky and through Arkansas into Texas. The West Coast was very wet in the winter of 1995-1996, while the Northeast and portions of the Southeast were slightly above average in precipitation.
While details are impossible to figure out this far out, we will provide more data as we receive it. Look on the right sidebar and click '2011-2012 Winter Forecast' tag for all posts regarding that topic.
