Forecasters unveil weather outlook for winter

NOAA predicting mild winter in New England – Boston News, Weather, Sports

No parts of the country are due to see a colder-than-normal winter.

A mild winter could be in store for much of the United States this winter according to NOAA's Climate Prediction Center.

But North and SC, along with much of the southeast and Mid-Atlantic, the Tennessee Valley and Ohio Valley, "all have equal chances for below-, near- or above-average temperatures", NOAA said.

El Nino tends to generate an active subtropical jet stream that would hike precipitation across the southern half of the country, including in Southern California, where beneficial rains could swiftly morph into threatening flooding and mudslides.

An overall mild winter is expected when it comes to temperatures, with most of the USA expected to see warmer than normal temperatures, some much warmer than normal, according to the NOAA outlook from its Climate Prediction Center.

Winter looks wet and especially mild for much of the country, thanks to a weak El Nino brewing, US meteorologists said.

Broadly speaking, "El Nino" refers to a climate effect caused by warming sea surface temperatures in parts of the Pacific Ocean. During the winter, typical El Nino conditions in the US can include wetter-than-average precipitation in the South and drier conditions in parts of the North. Weather experts predict a warmer than normal winter in Kansas.

The El Nino year is not expected to be as strong as the 2015-16 event that brought significant snowfall.

But they are expected to get better in Arizona and New Mexico, southern parts of Utah and Colorado, the coastal Pacific Northwest and the Central Plains, NOAA said.
