NOAA confirms a "neutral" weather pattern this winter, saying no strong climate pattern influence for the up-coming winter season.  National headlines include drought conditions likely to persist or develop in the Southwest and Southeastern United States.  The map above shows the Northern Rockies to be the bulls-eye for above normal precipitation, in the form of heavy snowfall.

The temperature outlook shows above normal warmth across the Southwest, Texas and New England, as well as parts of Alaska.  Notice both maps show low forecast confidence for the Pacific Northwest, meaning equal chance is given for dry verses wet and warm verses dry.
