    AccuWeather and the Farmers' Almanac are forecasting heavy snowfall this winter in parts of the Midwest, East coast and Pacific Northwest.

    The basis of the forecast is that a weak La Nina will be forming this fall and staying through the winter. Last year a La Nina blocked Greenland leading to heavy snowfall in the Midwest and Northeast.

    According to AccuWeather, the cold will be back in the Appalachians which lead to heavy snow.

    Bands of above-normal snow will fall in the western Great Lakes area and the Midwest because of a storm coming through the Rockies.

    This map from shows above normal snowfall in the Midwest and parts of the East coast during the winter of 2011-2012.

    The mountain forecast is predicted to be a normal snow fall year and not the extreme snow that fell last year.
