NOAA: Brace for a brutal winter

By JOSIE GARCIANews 4 San AntonioSAN ANTONIO - If the weather predictors have it right, most of the country better brace for a fairly brutal winter. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its forecast for winter on Thursday.NOAA predicts above average precipitation for the entire southern tier of the country... crediting an El Nino that could be the strongest on record.However, even that's unlikely to erase years of drought.NOAA also predicted a wetter and cooler winter in the southeast... and along the east coast to southern New England. All of which adds up to....a far from normal winter for the entire country.
