A mild NJ winter? Forecasters say so - but offer no snow outlook

Earth breaks September heat record, may reach warmest year

"From expansive and multi-hazard winter storms to narrow but intense lake effect snow, NOAA will provide the necessary information to keep communities safe".

MI could see a lot of snow this winter according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which came out with its 2020 U.S. Winter Outlook on Thursday. The country is now in its most widespread drought since 2013.

"Forecasters at NOAA's Climate Prediction Center ... are also closely monitoring persistent drought during the winter months ahead, with more than 45% of the continental us now experiencing drought", NOAA said.

Like the past 2 years, more than two thirds of the continental United States, northern and western Alaska, and Hawaii will likely experience hotter than average temperatures through January 2021.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a report today outlining that the global temperature was 1.75 degrees Fahrenheit above the normal of 59 degrees F.

More modest chances for drier conditions are forecast from California to the Central Plains and into the Southeast. It is known to cause above-average precipitation across the northern Midwest.

NOAA confidently predicts that the southern half of the country will receive less precipitation than average this winter in addition to experiencing hotter-than-average temperatures. Temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s by Friday morning and could be widespread in the 30s by Saturday morning.

Overall, AccuWeather predicts the New Jersey region will likely get far more snow than previous year, but total accumulations will be 25% to 50% less than we normally get.
