It may be off 75 degrees, but the cold is slowly beginning to remind us that New England’s infamous winter weather is approaching.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Announcing winter weather forecast Thursday morning seems to be actually a mild winter.
In New England, temperatures can be 40% to 50% higher than normal and can be higher, lower, or near normal precipitation. Although the upper Vermont is tilted 33% to 40% more than usual.
The forecast is weather winter, December, January and February.
As for what this means for big snowstorms and cold waves, NOAA’s predictions are just predictions, and New England can do what it does often and surprise us all. The storms we all remember, like the 2018 snowstorm and Nor’easter, were unpredictable months ago.
Nationally, it is warmer than average in most of the South and East Coast, especially in the southeast, and cold in the Pacific Northwest. NOAA also predicts a moderate La Niña phenomenon — Below average sea temperature in the eastern Pacific Ocean — It also affects weather patterns. The La Niña phenomenon can lead to cold, rainy weather in the northeast.
“In line with typical La Niña conditions during the winter, some parts of the northern United States are expected to have lower than normal temperatures, but much of the south will have higher than normal temperatures,” said the climate forecast. Jon Gottschalck, Head of Operations Forecasting, said. The center said in the announcement. “The southwest will certainly remain a concern, as most areas are expected to have lower than normal rainfall, which will continue to be drought.”
Droughts are expected to continue and develop in new regions across the country, including the east coast and southeastern part of Florida. Severe droughts continue in the west, but drought improvements are most likely to be seen in the Pacific Northwest, Northern California, the Upper Midwest, and Hawaii.
