The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently released their weather forecast for the upcoming winter. Following is a transcript of the video.
Here’s the 2017-2018 winter forecast: Meteorologists predict a high chance of abnormally warm weather for Hawaii, northwest Alaska, most of the southern US, and East Coast.
Pockets of the northern US will likely have a colder winter than normal. Despite a mild winter ahead, the south has a greater risk of unusually drier conditions.
Whereas regions of the north and Midwest will most likely receive a boost in precipitation. While these predictions are broad they also depend on one important factor: La Niña.
La Niña causes abnormally cooler temperatures in the Pacific which can affect weather across North America. If La Niña develops within the next two months it will bring an unusually cold winter to the northern US. Are you ready?
