Now that autumn is here, let's skip the season entirely and look ahead to winter. (Not that we don't like autumn, but from our perspective, snowstorms are way more interesting than mostly cloudy with a chance of rain.)

The folks at AccuWeather just sent us its winter forecast. Enjoy:

The 2011-12 Winter Pre-Season Forecast AccuWeather.com reports that apart from the Southwest, people across the western United States can expect large swings in weather conditions throughout the winter, according to the AccuWeather.com Long-Range Forecasting Team.?? December is likely to feature above-normal warmth across much of the entire West. However, from late December into January, the team expects a transition where cold fronts will drop farther south along the West Coast, reaching northern and central California. This transition should bring temperatures back near normal, away from the interior Southwest.?? The famed "Pineapple Express," a phenomenon that occurs when a strong, persistent flow of tropical moisture sets up from the Hawaiian Islands to the West Coast of the U.S., could develop for a time this winter. This phenomenon often leads to excessive rain and incredible snow events.
