The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, has a Climate Prediction Center. Where I live, NOAA predicts an equal chance of temperatures and precipitation being either below or above average for the winter months.
The Farmer's Almanac will present it's view of the coming winter within the next
couple of days. The rumor is that here where I live the Almanac will predict a
cold and snowy winter. All of which is just a little dull, so here's my
prediction. Winter 2015-2016 will be warm, sunny, an occasional frost, the odd
smattering of snow and Spring will arrive promptly on March 1st.
