Meteorologist predicts less and snow and cold for the East Coast this winter

    Great news for anyone dreading another winter of shoveling: Meteorologist Jim Rouiller tells Bloomberg East Coast cities will see less snow this year and be much warmer.

    Rouiller, of Bernwyn’s Planalytics Inc., says average temperatures are up, and that miserable cold we feel around this time each year won’t blow in until January, if at all. This is good news for energy bills, but not such hot news for some energy companies.
