Almanac predicts bitterly cold winter for parts of U.S. - CNN.com: "'A large area of numbingly cold temperatures will predominate from roughly east of the Continental Divide to west of the Appalachians. The coldest temperatures will be over the northern Great Lakes and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.'"
