About That 'Colder, Wetter Winter' Prediction

About That 'Colder, Wetter Winter' Prediction

Though Southern California may be drier, much of northern California is expected to have a normal winter, leading NOAA to downplay any drought concerns. It's expecting a cooler than average winter in parts of the Pacific northwest.

"If La Nina conditions develop, we predict it will be weak and potentially short-lived, but it could still shape the character of the upcoming winter", said Mike Halpert, deputy director of the NOAA center. The 2015-2016 winter was record warm, about 4.55 degrees hotter than normal.

Last season also brought a La NiƱa weather pattern, which dumped drought 866 inches of snow on the ski area - and plenty to the lowlands, too.

The areas that fall into the unmarked sections of these maps have an equal chance of above-, near-, or higher-than-normal temperatures and precipitation levels, the NOAA says.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its annual U.S. Winter Outlook this week.

Northwest Alaska may be wetter than usual, while Hawaii has about 40% odds of being drier than usual.

Samsung CEO to quit amid record profits
For its bottom-line boost, the company credited the success of its Galaxy S8 smartphone, along with strong memory-chip sales. Samsung had a great quarter, thanks mainly to the increasing demand for memory chips with large storage capacities.

NOAA's winter outlook doesn't forecast snow or specific storms, but La Ninas tend to favor more storms coming from the west and north than from the Gulf of Mexico or the East Coast, he said.

Private forecasting firm Accuweather agrees that a La Nina pattern is likely to emerge with the start of winter.

The outlook covers winter precipitation and temperatures. In its US winter forecast released earlier this month, Accuweather predicts that some chilly winter weather is in store for the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, with January threatening to bring the coldest air of the season.

The agency's winter outlook will be updated on November 16.

"Our models are kind of waffling in that area", Halpert said.
