Share post:

CHICAGO, IL – The much-anticipated U.S. Winter Outlook for 2023-24 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) brings a sigh of relief to the Midwestern states. 

According to the report, the re-emergence of El Nino is set to moderate the usual winter chill, driving warmer-than-average temperatures across the northern tier of the US. The NOAA outlook is crucial for Midwestern industries, from agriculture to energy production, assisting them in seasonal preparations. 

While regions near the Great Lakes are predicted to have drier conditions, a near-normal temperature range is expected from the south-central Rockies to the southern Plains. The outlook also hints at some drought alleviation in the southern and central U.S., courtesy of the expected wetter conditions. 

With the evolving climate scenario, NOAA’s enhanced forecasting tools aim to equip communities in the Midwest and beyond, ensuring a safer and well-prepared winter season.
