La Nina for Winter 2017/2018
La Nina is menacing for Winter 2017/2018. La Nina increases snow volume for the north west and north around the great lakes. With other factors combined, an early warning may be prompted for a brutal, harsh winter for the north west of the states. Places like Montana, Washington, Oregon could see a very harsh winter for 2017/2018. A relatively “warm and wet” winter seems probable for further southern and eastern regions, anywhere from Texas to New York south eastwards could see a relatively warm, wet winter. Midland areas in the north like the Dakotas could also see a harsh winter, but not quite like is expected up NW.
Last winter saw somewhat of a North West / East split with the brunt of the cold, snowy and bad winter weather in the north west with upper parts of Montana and California seeing 300% of their average snowfall, with eastern and central places in a much milder contrast
Winter 2017/2018 forecast United States
As for central areas, expect a fairly average winter with perhaps an increased volume of ice storms in a line from Colorado, Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky. The forecast could change, so please stay tuned for changes in the coming weeks.
