NORMAL vs. AVERAGE: AVERAGE is the statistical mid point. NORMAL is the variation back and forth between extremes. Wisconsin will NEVER have an AVERAGE winter in terms of precipitation or temperature on a daily resolution. It is colder than AVERAGE and we've had a NORMAL winter w/ respect to temperature fluxes. The NWS should know better than this. This is a recurring misconception and my pet peeve.
