Winter Weather Outlook | VideoHenry Blakes | 11/2/2012
Last winter was exceptionally mild with below average snowfall. Many areas received less than 20 inches of snow last year, making it one of the driest winters on record. But this year is expected to be different..
"People are wondering, `Are we going to have another non-winter this year?` Odds certainly don`t favor that," said KFYR-TV Chief Meteorologist Kevin Lawrence.
The official government forecast issued by NOAA says North Dakota should expect a warmer than average winter, with normal precipitation.
"I do agree with the official NOAA weather forecast, calling for slightly warmer temperatures. The key here is North Dakota is situated right in between what I`m calling a battleground state for the weather this winter," Lawrence said.
So if the forecast holds true, that means we shouldn`t see anything out of the ordinary.
