Forecasters Predict Warmer-Than-Average Winter In Majority Of U.S.

October 19, 20175:57 PM ET-Merrit Kennedy

This winter is going to be a warm one for the majority of the United States, according to forecasters at NOAA's Climate Prediction Center.
They say that the La Niņa weather pattern is likely to develop. That means "greater-than-average snowfall around the Great Lakes and in the northern Rockies, with less-than-average snowfall throughout the Mid-Atlantic region," Mike Halpert of the Climate Prediction Center said in a forecast Thursday.

Winter forecast: Warmer-than-average temps expected for most of USA, thanks to developing El Niņo

Doyle Rice, USA TODAY Published 12:17 p.m. ET Oct. 18, 2018 | Updated 8:24 a.m. ET Oct. 19, 2018

t won't be long until we're talking gloves, ice storms and snowmen. How bad will the weather be this winter?

Warmer-than-average temperatures for most of the nation are expected, according to federal forecasters from the Climate Prediction Center in their official winter weather forecast released Thursday.

This is primarily due to a developing El Niņo, a natural climate pattern defined as unusually warm seawater in the central Pacific Ocean. It affects weather patterns in the USA and around the world.

GOOD! Maybe I won't have to shell out a fortune for heat this winter. It will also be nice to not have to venture out in sub-zero weather any more than I have too.

HA! Said by the man who works from home.

The little house in town is about 12, count 'em 12, minutes from work, rather than the 45-60 minutes from the actual 'home'. If we get inclement weather, I can be at 'home' in short order now. I stay there about 3 nights a week to reduce my commute time and stress, do little bit of work on it here and there. No cable TV or internet (other than wi-fi with my phone) so limited on entertainment factors, but there is always my kindle or PBS.

Yeah, but I still have to go out and push snow around when it accumulates. I am really starting to dislike that little chore.
