The upcoming winter should be milder than last year across the Southeast.

An update forecast from the Climate Prediction Center indicates temperatures across the Southeast should be warmer than last winter.  Eastern North Carolina averaged 3.75 degrees below normal last year.  The expected milder temperatures should average near or slightly warmer than normal.  Consequently, we could see temperatures this winter average as much as 4 to 5 degrees warmer than last winter.  The warmer temperatures could have a significant impact on on energy costs, which would be good news for most folks.  Rainfall is expected to average below normal.  It could mean more sunny days than usual.  Last winter was very wet, with many days remaining overcast.

    UPDATE: By next week,the change I have been predicting will occur. A barreling arctic front will push through. causing our temperatures to plunge. As NAO tanks, blocking will occur over North America. Therefore, we will see a colder than normal December with low pressures occasionally rising along the trough offshore. This will increase winter weather chances. In fact, models hint at the potential around the 5th of December with more chances throughout the month. January will be near to slightly below average and normal chances of winter precip. February and March will be above normal with below normal precip. I believe we will still have chances for winter weather and frigid temps throughout the year, just not as prolonged as last year. Stay Tuned!
