Joe turned us on to an even-shorter term cold snap that he expects around either side of Halloween (by a week or two). Although the bulk of the cold will center in the middle of the nation, the cold and winter weather that we experienced in the Fall of 2002 here in State College, PA was mentioned, when we had to go trick-or-treating in the snow (it's impossible to predict precip that far out, but the cold air will be there).
I wouldn't be surprised to see some flurries somewhere in the Northeast that week.

Could it be like 2002 again here in State College, PA? Only time will tell...
