Colder—But Not Colder Than Average
This winter is forecast to be much colder than last year’s, but—just like last winter—not colder than average. In fact, a large part of the northern United States will experience milder-than-average temperatures (though we would still recommend having your long underwear on-hand), while much of the South and West can expect to feel cooler than normal. Escaping this chill are Florida and the Southeast, where milder-than-average temperatures will be felt.
A Wet and Snowy Winter All-Around
Precipitation will be at above-normal levels throughout the country, which will translate to equally above-normal amounts of snowfall in parts of the Northeast, central Great Lakes, central Plains, Intermountain region, and from eastern Tennessee through New Mexico. Get your shovels ready! Notable exceptions to this wet winter are the Pacific Northwest and Upper Midwest, where less precipitation than average is expected.
2018 Winter Weather Forecast: Canada
From coast to coast, Canadians are in for a milder-than-average winter overall. (A welcome change, we think!)
…And Not So Snowy
Most of Canada will see below-normal levels of rain and snow this winter, though the southeast and northwest corners of the country are exceptions. Southeastern Ontario, Yukon, northern Labrador, and most of Quebec will see more snow than normal, while the rest of Atlantic Canada can expect above-average amounts of rain.
