WINTER WEATHER FORECAST

This summer and fall, we have seen below average rainfall.  We spoke with Meteorologist Gary Schmocker from the National Weather Service about what we might be able to expect this winter. Schmocker said we can expect above average temperatures with below normal precipitation in November.  This reflects the pattern we have seen for the past few months.  Temperatures in the winter months of December, January, and February should remain pretty close to average, however we might see slightly above average levels of precipitation. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, we can expect to see average temperatures this year, accompanied by lots of wet snow as early as Halloween.
