during the month of october. >> it was a big, big number, a big year. harvey this map shows the : average snow cover. and here's what it looked like on halloween. that area, the third-largest measured in the last 40 years. here's why that's important. more snow cover means more cold air can build over siberia, creating this dome of cold dense air. >> it's like a dam breaking and that cold air spills out to the lower latitudes and we get these arctic outbreaks. harvey you may remember one of : day. the temperature in boston plunged to minus 9, with a wind chill of minus 36. cohen thinks climate change could be a factor. >> the warm arctic, decreases sea ice, but also makes more moisture available and we get these kind of snow blitzes across siberia. and that's where we get these more severe winter weather episodes, so i think it's all connected. harvey for this winter, cohen's : model is predicting significant snowfall.
5:56 pm
