With the Southeast the only region not projected to have above-normal temperatures, that could mean a few winter storms will bring snow to the Deep South, which can cause major disruption to the region.

"That does not mean that below average temperatures can not occur", Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, said in a statement.

The northwestern United States, including parts of Northern California near the OR border, is likely to see the highest chances of warmer temperatures.

But North and SC, along with much of the southeast and Mid-Atlantic, the Tennessee Valley and Ohio Valley, "all have equal chances for below-, near- or above-average temperatures", NOAA said.

"NOAA" s Winter 2018 temperature outlook for the United States.

-No part of the U.S.is favored to have below-average temperatures.

During that time, an Arctic cold front will move across the USA and produce bitter winds and a drop in the temperature over much of the U.S.

No parts of the country are due to see a colder-than-normal winter.

2018-19 Winter Outlook map for temperature. Northern Florida and southern Georgia have the greatest odds for above-average precipitation during the winter, the NOAA said.

Drought conditions are forecast to stay put this winter in the Southwest, Southern California, central Great Basin, central Rockies, Northern Plains and portions of the interior Pacific Northwest.

But drought conditions are anticipated to improve in areas in Arizona and New Mexico, southern sections of Utah and Colorado, as well as the coastal Pacific Northwest and Central Plains, the agency said.

The Climate Prediction Center's outlook seems to at least indirectly contradict the one released by the 2019 Farmers' Almanac, an annual Lewiston-based publication which uses a mathematical and astronomical formula created in 1818 to come up with long-range forecasts.

If the snowfall earlier this week reminded you how much you don't like the winter cold, you may be in luck.

Tampa meteorologist Jennifer Hubbard said the Tampa Bay area can except mostly the same, with mild winter temperatures near or slightly above average, as well as more rain than usual. The next update will be posted on November 15.
