Winter '09 / '10 - WSI

Todd Crawford - Seasonal Forecaster:

"A moderate El Nino event will likely persist through the winter, resulting in cool weather across the Southeast”[...]. “However, ocean temperatures in the North Pacific are not currently supportive of a typical El Nino pattern this upcoming winter. If this persists, this winter will likely be colder in the western US than is typical during El Nino events.

"In the Northeast, we expect a relatively mild fall, with increased chances of sharply colder weather after the New Year. The combination of various climate indices suggests that the winter will likely arrive late but loudly in much of the East, and that a mild start will not necessarily persist through the winter.

"In December, WSI forecasts:
Northeast – Warmer than normal"
