NOAA predicting mild winter in New England

While the current spell of unseasonably cold weather might have you fearing the worst this winter, the NOAA's Climate Prediction Center's outlook from December through February is anticipating a milder winter for much of the US, according to their forecast released Thursday.

An overall mild winter is expected when it comes to temperatures, with most of the USA expected to see warmer than normal temperatures, some much warmer than normal, according to the NOAA outlook from its Climate Prediction Center.

Mike Halpert, Deputy Director of NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, says their forecast calls for above average temperatures and below average precipitation for both the Lower and Upper Peninsula. During the winter, typical El Nino conditions in the USA can include wetter-than-average precipitation in the South and drier conditions in parts of the North.

Northern Florida and southern Georgia could see the wettest conditions this winter, according to NOAA, followed by central and Eastern North Carolina, much of South Carolina, Texas and New Mexico, northern Georgia and far southern parts of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. Due to this, above-average temperatures look likely for the northern and western United States, Alaska and Hawaii.

During that time, an Arctic cold front will move across the USA and produce bitter winds and a drop in the temperature over much of the U.S. Weather experts predict a warmer than normal winter in Kansas.

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

Kentucky has equal chances for both above and below average temperatures according to NOAA's outlook.

Halpert said the southern one-third of the United States and much of the East Coast could be hunkering down for a wetter than normal December through January.

- Warmer-than-normal conditions are anticipated across much of the northern and western US, with the greatest likelihood in Alaska and from the Pacific Northwest to the Northern Plains.

-This outlook does not project seasonal snowfall accumulations.

"Snow forecasts are generally not predictable more than a week in advance", the agency said.

-Even during a warmer than normal winter, it will still get cold and snow is still likely to occur.
