TULSA, Okla - The Farmer’s Almanac says this winter will be mild and wet with wild temperature swings and periods of storminess in Oklahoma.
But National Weather Service Meteorologist Nicole Mcgavock says it's too soon to predict what kind of weather Green Country will be dealing with in December, January, February and March.
Mcgavock says, "Right now there's an equal chance for above, near and below normal for both precipitation and temperatures. It's looking like we could be seeing an El Nino develop in the Pacific Ocean for the winter time. We don't really know the impact that's going to have on the United States just yet."
Mcgavock says El Nino and La Nina affect where thunderstorms form in the Pacific Ocean, which in turn impact the North American jet stream.
The Farmer’s Almanac is calling for drier than normal and cool for the Pacific North West.
Wet and chilly weather is forecast for the southwest.
The Midwest and Rocky Mountains are going to be milder than normal with average precipitation.
The east coast will see colder than normal temperatures with a mix of snow, sleet and rain, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
