Because our HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) industry is so concerned with the weather and the need to be prepared to best serve our customer base, we have taken a look ahead to see what our government’s weather forecasters are saying about what’s in store for our area for Fall 2017.
Let’s see what the experts say!
What NOAA’s (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) official maps are showing us is that with a lack of an El Niño or La Niña event, this winter will see most of the continental United States with equal chances of an average winter in terms of snow. Remember, the El Nino phase is warmer water and the La Nina phase is colder water around the planet’s equator. Temperature probability for much of the United States is a little clearer with NOAA calling for above average temperatures, everywhere except the upper Midwest.
“Despite the ENSO-neutral forecast lean, we still have a fair number of models forecasting at least a weak El Niño through the upcoming winter. Therefore, forecasters certainly are not ruling out the development of El Niño; in fact, they are calling for an elevated chance, relative to average, of El Niño phase.
Dr. Crawford, a NOAA researcher says, “as we head deeper into the fall and El Nino matures, we expect a continuation of above-average temperatures across the central and western states, with an expanding area of below-average temperatures in the eastern U.S. by October.”
All in all, the forecast is uncertain at best with the consensus being that the Fall and Winter seasons of 2017-18 will bring normal temperatures and precipitation.
