What Kind of Winter Are we Going To Have?

I know its just now about to start really feeling like fall around the Four States Area. But weather forecasters are already speculating on what the winter will hold.It’s going to be harder than usual to predict what the winter outlook will be. This is because for the first time in a while, we are heading into winter with neither a la nina or el nino event. These two opposites have to do with the temperature in the equatorial region of the Pacific Ocean and has a big impact on weather across North America.

Last year we were in la nina which usually means warmer and drier for the southern part of the U.S., and if you remember it was that kind of winter.

Forecasters originally predicted a weak to moderate el nino for this winter, which would mean more precipitation. However meteorologists now believe that el nino has fizzled and we will be near neutral conditions for the upcoming season..

What this means is maybe a more typical winter??? We could be in for wild swings in temperatures and dry and wet spells. While not relying on the pacific ocean temperatures but on jet stream and other weather related patterns which will be hard to predict more than a week or so.

Hopefully we will get one or two snow events, but we will just have to wait and see. Indications are that it should be cooler than last years very warm winter and more precipitation, but beyond that it’s anybody’s guess.

Stay Tuned.
