Estimates predicting warmer winter this year

Estimates predicting warmer winter this year”

Warmer-than-normal conditions are most likely across the southern two-thirds of the continental United States, along the East Coast (including New York City), across Hawaii and in western and northern Alaska. La Nina phases typically bring more snow in both the Rockies and around the Great Lakes. It's expecting a cooler than average winter in parts of the Pacific northwest.

NOAA's Climate Prediction Center calls for colder than average temperatures across the Pacific Northwest in 2017-18. The 2015-2016 winter was record warm, about 4.55 degrees hotter than normal. When this weather pattern develops, the effects can be felt around the world.

The climate signals in these areas are not strong enough to tilt the odds either way, NOAA said.

Warmer-than-normal conditions are most likely across the southern two-thirds of the continental USA and along the East Coast, including North Carolina, as well as across Hawaii and in western and northern Alaska.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its annual U.S. Winter Outlook this week.

Private forecasting firm Accuweather agrees that a La Nina pattern is likely to emerge with the start of winter.

Nationally, Halpert said, he expected a generally warm winter, but not as warm a winter as the past two, which were No. 1 and No. 6 all time in terms of warmth.

The NOAA is also predicting precipitation levels for the upcoming winter.

Halpert said the southern U.S.is likely to be drier than normal, while the north from eastern Washington through the Great Lakes to update NY is likely to be wetter. Jones said northern areas of the state might just be immune from La Niña, spelling good news for ski areas and skiers themselves.

This winter is expected to be snowier than usual for Chicago.
