October/November were tenth coldest on record in the US (before NOAA/GISS tampering.) Also note that October/November temperatures have been declining since the year 1900 in the US.
Almost the entire US was below normal temperature during the last 60 days.
And we have near record cold forecast until at least Christmas.
Based on December temperatures, it looks to me like the only two years which have a chance of beating Q4 2013 for the cold championship, are 1976 and 2000.
