The National Weather Service (technically the Climate Prediction Center which is a part of NOAA) issued its seasonal outlook for the coming winter.
So far, 2019 has been the wettest year ever on record in Green Bay. We set this record in early October and we still have almost 2.5 months left in the year!
This wet and active pattern is not expected to let up anytime soon so it makes sense that the PRECIPITATION OUTLOOKS is above average.
Temperatures are expected to be near average, meaning some warm periods and cold shots of air, which is very common for northeast Wisconsin winters.
Everywhere outside the upper midwest looks to be warmer than average.
So putting the two parts of the forecast together – near-average temperatures with above-average precipitation – snow lovers could be in for a treat.
For those not a fan of winter, better get some patience, it looks like it will be a long one.
