For folks looking forward to a milder winter, you just got some more good news. Forecasters at the NOAA Climate Prediction Center are calling for warmer than average temperatures across southern Wisconsin. Precipitation outlook is calling for an average amount precipitation to fall across the area. That would include the chances for some rain to also mix in with the snow. NOAA says the reason for it’s findings is the absence of La Nina and El Nino in the equatorial Pacific Ocean.
The outlook isn’t set in stone, but this is the second time NOAA is indicating that Wisconsin will have a warmer than average season. That’s not to say we won’t have the chance for some significant snow storms, or cold snaps. But after last winter, a milder winter might be a nice change for some. You’ll still have some snow to go sledding on, but not too much to shovel in the driveway.
Have a great weekend!!
