2014 – 2015 Winter Weather Forecast From The Weather Center

The major weather event that will affect the 2014 -2015 winter season will be the development of an El Niño. This weather event will largely determine the number of winter storms, the amount of snowfall as well as temperatures across the United States. It is still a bit early to have a firm forecast of what the winter of 2015 will have in store but The Weather Center has put together some information that will help to predict the winter weather in 2015.

What Can We Expect This Winter?

It’s too early to make maps for this upcoming winter, but we have an abundance of hints we can use for some early forecasting. Predictions for temperature and precipitation will be given. Anomalies in confidence will be listed; if no confidence level is listed, confidence is average.
 
For the Pacific Northwest: A warmer than normal winter with around average precipitation is currently favored, due to the state of the Pacific Ocean and choice analog year. Snowfall is projected to be slightly above normal.
 
For the Southwest: A warmer than normal winter with above average precipitation is currently favored, due to expected high pressure along the West Coast and an enhanced subtropical jet stream. Snowfall is projected to be around average.
 
For the North Plains: A cooler than normal winter with average precipitation is currently favored, due to the expected Pacific set-up and choice analog years. Snowfall is projected to be around average.
 
For the South Plains: A cooler than normal winter with slightly below average precipitation is currently favored. Snowfall is projected to be slightly above average.
 
For the Midwest and Great Lakes: A slightly cooler than normal winter with around average precipitation is currently favored. Low confidence.
