(KFOR NEWS October 18, 2019) Expect big swings in weather this winter, according to government forecasters. The government predicts a slight chance of warmer than normal weather in most of the United States…and no place will be colder than normal December through February.
The National Weather Service admits it doesn’t have much confidence in it. The deputy director of the service’s Climate Prediction Center says this year is hard to predict because there’s no El Nino or La Nina in the central Pacific, which are often key drivers of winter weather. That leaves things up to other global climate factors, ones that can flip every few weeks. Those often lead to dramatic weather swings. Remember last year’s winter forecast of warmer than normal turned out to be wrong.
