NOAA Predicts Warmer Winter for Much of the US

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

The organization's predictive maps placed ME in a sweeping band of orange, signifying that center forecasters believe the state is among those with a 40 percent to 50 percent chance of being "warmer than normal".

- No part of the U.S.is favored to have below-average temperatures. "Although a weak El Nino is expected, it may still influence the winter season by bringing wetter conditions across the southern United States, and warmer, drier conditions to parts of the North".

Center Deputy Director Mike Halpert said in a statement a "weak El Nino" could bring "warmer, drier conditions to parts of the North".

What will determine just how wet the Carolinas' winter could be is El Niño, "an ocean-atmosphere climate interaction that is linked to periodic warming in sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific".

California is likely to see hotter-than-average winter temperatures, while parts of Southern California could also get greater precipitation, according to NOAA.

Others also cared because Warren had listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory. She released a video of her family members discussing her claims of Native American background.

-Wetter-than-average conditions are favored across the southern tier of the USA, and up into the Mid-Atlantic. 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. Northern Florida and southern Georgia have the greatest odds for above-average precipitation during the winter, the NOAA said.

Meanwhile, the southern-third of the US and much of the East Coast could be hunkering down for a wetter than normal December through January. The real teeth-chattering arrives mid-February especially in the following zones: "Northeast/New England, Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Midwest, and Southeast (yes, even the Southeast will be in the chill zone!)". But in case you need some talking down, a new forecast from NOAA says that at the very least, it won't be a nightmare this year.

Cold air and even some snow blanketed areas of Maine Thursday, but the National Weather Service predictions indicate that Maine might experience a milder-than-average winter.

NOAA's winter forecast comes as the mercury is finally beginning to dip across most of the country after a summer that lasted well into October in the eastern United States, with temperatures into the 80s and even 90s. The next update will be available on November 15.
