 (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Winter weather forecasts from different outlets have been looking pretty cold and snowy after the first of the year but one from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts something a little different.

While its forecast shows a wetter than normal December through February, it also shows temperatures slightly above normal.

The winter will not be affected by an El Nino or La Nina this season meaning “neutral conditions are in place this year and expected to persist into the spring.”


NOAA adds that while temperatures are likely to be above normal in Pittsburgh and throughout the Northeast, that doesn’t mean we won’t see temperatures dip well below freezing.

“Even during a warmer-than-average winter, cold temperatures and snowfall are still likely to occur.”
