Wondering what the winter forecast for the US this year is?
Well, quite a number of weather-forecasting organizations have already made their outlook for winter of 2015 to 2015 public.
For example, the Weather Company has said that this year’s winter is not as harsh as the one experienced last year. The entity has also said that the chill is likely to be experienced in the Gulf and East coast.
Why does the Weather Company expect this year’s winter to be less chilly compared to last year? This is because the weather forecasters are expecting El Nino to take place sometime during the winter months that could potentially last up until spring season.
The El Nino phenomena bring about warmer weather, but it yet has to develop in the next few months.
But the presence of El Nino may not guarantee a warmer temperature all throughout during the winter season given that the El Nino is affected by other developments in the atmosphere. For example, the expected jet stream over the northern part of America can bring about cold air masses in different parts of the country.
