Milder Winter Ahead

Wyoming could see a much milder winter than we have the past few years.
According to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, above-average temperatures and below-average precipitation are forecast across the northern and western United States.
Mike Halpert, deputy director of the Prediction Center, says that a weak El Nino is expected that may influence the winter season by bringing wetter conditions across the southern United States, and warmer, drier conditions to parts of the North.
The prediction model shows that no part of the U.S. is favored to have below-average temperatures, and drier-than-average conditions are most likely in parts of the northern Rockies and Northern Plains.
