NOAA's prediction of a warm winter in much of the United States - with the greatest chance for extra warmth in Hawaii and Alaska - comes as NOAA calculates that the earth is on pace for the second hottest year on record, behind 2016.
A swath of the country from Montana, across the Dakotas, through most of Minnesota and Wisconsin and all the way to western OH may get a winter that's snowier than average, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Prediction Center reported Thursday. It may, but there just is not anything that is causing forecasters to lean toward cold or warm.
The forecast calls for a 40-50 percent chance of higher than normal precipitation through the December-February time frame.
El Niño and La Niña can influence our overall weather trends in the winter, but neither is expected to develop.
"Without either El Niño or La Niña conditions, short-term climate patterns like the Arctic Oscillation will drive winter weather and could result in large swings in temperature and precipitation", said Mike Halpert, deputy director of the Climate Prediction Center.

Temperatures below freezing and a dose of moisture could come together on any given winter day to form one of those snowstorms that blanket New England with snow and whip up drifts.
Portions of California, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and MS are expected to have drier than normal winter months.
Drought is expected to improve in portions of the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Alaska, and Hawaii, while persisting in central Texas and the Southwest.
The outlook doesn't include a projection of snowfall accumulations, since snow forecasts are generally not predictable more than a week in advance, according to NOAA. Look for the next update on November 21.
