NOAA Winter Outlook: Warmer for Much of the United States

"Up in ME the forecast is actually what we call "equal chances", which means there's no tilt in those odds, so it's just as likely to be a wetter-than-normal winter as a drier-than-normal winter", says Halpert.

In the winter, the NOAA said, typical El Nino conditions include wetter-than-average precipitation in the southern USA and drier conditions in parts of the northern U.S.

Above-average rainfall is most likely northern Florida and southern Georgia this winter.

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. "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". 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.

Other climate patterns that can affect winter weather are challenging to predict on a seasonal time scale.

In the U.S. Winter Outlook for December through February, higher-than-normal temperatures are expected across the western and northern U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii.

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

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

Drought conditions may worsen in much of Southern and Central California, although the north coast of California may see some relief, according to NOAA.

-Wetter-than-average conditions are favored across the southern tier of the USA, and up into the Mid-Atlantic.

Hawaii, Montana, Michigan, parts of Idaho, Wisconsin, northern Illinois, Indiana and OH are forecast to be drier than normal, with the biggest likelihood in Hawaii, Montana and Michigan.

If the snowfall earlier this week reminded you how much you don't like the winter cold, you may be in luck.

NOAA's Climate Prediction Center updates the three-month outlook each month.

The Farmer's Almanac said that for its winter outlook, the temperatures are going to be cold with "plenty of snow".

Farmer's Almanac Editor Peter Geiger said in late August his publication predicts "a very long, cold and snow-filled winter". The next update will be posted on November 15.
