This Winter will be a cold one with lots of lake Effect due to a more western PV.With many troughs coming through the east it will also help keep the temps chilly. Above Normal Precip Will be found across The  Great Lakes due to above average lake effect snow and many Alberta Clippers dropping down from Canada bringing us quick bouts of snow. Most coastal storms will stay too far off the shore for the Great Lakes to recieve any precip but the few Nor'easters that do develop will have an effect on the 1-95 corrodor bringing some snow to that region.
