On the bright side, East Coasters shouldn't have to deal with a cold front for too long.

"The reversal of tropical forcing suggests that the coldest weather in the eastern U.S, may occur earlier in the winter, with increasing chances for warmth during the late winter," chief meteorologist Dr. Todd Crawford said in the release.

According to , last winter was the warmest December-February period in 121 years, with at least 36 states recording it as one of their top 10 warmest winters.

The Weather Channel says the chances for a mild winter all around this year are even greater, despite the doomsday predictions of the Farmer's Almanac.

"Climate model forecasts for winter are unusually warm, likely reflecting the excess post-El-Nino global warmth, and another very warm winter is not out of the question due to this factor alone," Dr. Crawford said.
