This winter: Up in the air
Last winter saw a dramatic
contrast between the balmy U.S. West and the frigid East.
This year's winter outlooks from NOAA
and IRI (precipitation
have more uncertainty than usual, thanks to "La Nada"--the
of a strong El Niño or La Niña. Both IRI and
NOAA are calling for a good chance of warmer-than-usual conditions
across the southern and western U.S. and a slight tendency
toward a wet winter across the Southern Plains.
