NOAA predicts a warmer, wetter California winter due to weak El Niño

19 October, 2018, 16:55 | Author: Darnell Taylor

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

The NOAA outlook covers the months of December, January and February, when the average high temperatures in Portland are 37 degrees, 31 degrees and 35 degrees, respectively.

According to NOAA, in ME, the three-month average snowfall in Portland, across December, January and February, is 14.8 inches, in Bangor 16.1 inches, and in Caribou, 23.4 inches.

A weak El Niño, described by NOAA as a warming of parts of the Pacific Ocean, is likely to occur this winter, which may contribute to increased precipitation in the southern United States and parts of the East Coast, according to NOAA.

There's a lot more than just an El Nino pattern that determines how winter will play out.

"All things being equal, the slight kick we get out of the climate signal does tilt things toward the warm side", Halpert said; cautioning, however, that that's not enough to outweigh other factors if they push toward cold.

The northwestern United States, including parts of Northern California near the OR border, is likely to see the highest chances of warmer temperatures. The WYMT Weather team will have their 2018-2019 Winter Outlook for Eastern Kentucky on Tuesday, November 20th.

No place in the U.S.is expected to experience cooler-than-average temperatures, according to NOAA.

The northern Rockies, northern Plains, Great Lakes and northern Ohio Valley are likely to see below-average precipitation, including snow.

Along with Michigan, Halper said northern Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin are expected to be drier than normal, along with parts of Idaho, Hawaii and Montana, too.

Precipitation is expected to be above normal across the southern tier of the United States, extending up into the Mid-Atlantic.

Drought conditions are anticipated to improve in areas throughout Arizona and New Mexico, southern sections of Utah and Colorado, the coastal Pacific Northwest and the Central Plains.

For those looking for snowfall projections, you won't find those in NOAA's winter outlook.

The NOAA's Climate Prediction Center posts its three-month outlook once a month.

The Farmer's Almanac said that for its winter outlook, the temperatures are going to be cold with "plenty of snow". Snow forecasts are generally not predictable more than a week in advance.
