Here’s the 2020 Winter Outlook for Your State

Some are already experiencing the golden hues of fall foliage and others are still wearing short sleeves and sandals. Regardless of your weather now, winter is on its way, and if you’re curious about what your weather will be like, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released its predictions.

For those in northern states, temperatures are predicted to be cooler than normal, and there’s an increased chance for precipitation as well. If you were hoping for less snow, that may not happen. Unless, however, you live in New England, which will see warmer temps and more drought-like conditions. Southern states are in for even warmer weather than they typically see as well as increased dryness overall. For those hoping to see snow down south, you may want to temper your expectations.

Neil Jacobs PhD, acting NOAA administrator, explains that the predictions are designed to help prepare communities for inclement weather stating, “NOAA’s timely and accurate seasonal outlooks and short-term forecasts are the result of improved satellite observations, more detailed computer forecast modeling, and expanding supercomputing capacity. From expansive and multi-hazard winter storms to narrow but intense lake effect snow, NOAA will provide the necessary information to keep communities safe.”

If you want to know more about winter’s upcoming weather, you can find more over at the official NOAA website.
