La Niña Expected to Impact Winter Conditions Again
Germantown, MD – November 9, 2017 –The Earth Networks Meteorology Team will release its 2017-2018 Winter Outlook on November 16, 2017 during a live webinar at 2:00 p.m. ET presented by Senior Meteorologist James Aman. After last year’s toasty winter – the sixth warmest on record for the 48 contiguous states –the 2017-2018 winter will be a roller coaster. Cold snaps and atypical thaws will make for a wild ride for many regions of the U.S.
Last winter, we saw the brief emergence of a weak La Niña, which is the abnormal warming in the equatorial Pacific waters, leading to a warmer than normal U.S. winter. La Niña typically produces warm and dry winters from Texas across the Southeast U.S., and colder than average weather from the North-Central U.S. into Washington state.
Join our Winter Outlook webinar and find out what to expect over the coming winter months:
- High Temperatures - For two straight years we’ve had record warmth, will it persist?
- Snowstorms – Will the snowplow be working overtime? How many snow days should you expect?
- Regional Insights – Will the East Coast be wetter than normal? Will it be drier than normal in the South?

“The development of a weak La Niña indicates this winter may be a repeat of some of the same conditions we saw in 2016-17,” said James Aman, Senior Meteorologist, Earth Networks. “However, we are anticipating variability in how this pattern will impact different parts of the U.S.”
