(THE WEATHER CHANNEL) – Temperatures in December may look a bit different than those experienced in much of the U.S. in November, according to the latest outlook from The Weather Company, an IBM Business.
Many areas in the eastern and central U.S. experienced record cold in November, but there are signs that a warmer pattern will emerge across much of the contiguous U.S. in mid-December.
That pattern change combined with the emerging El Niño will bring a warming trend to much of the contiguous U.S. that may last into late December.
Overall temperatures are expected to be near-to-slightly-above average from the Plains to the East Coast.
Above-average temperatures are expected from the Northwest into the northern Great Lakes, while portions of the Southwest, Great Basin and Rockies may experience near-to-below-average conditions.
“Given the strong medium-range model signals for northern U.S. warmth by the second week of December, which match historical El Niño December aggregates, along with sub-seasonal signals, we’ve made significant warmer changes to the December forecast,” notes Dr. Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist with The Weather Company.
