Accuweather’s Winter Outlook 2016/17 in the USA:

Northeastern US:

“Frequent storms across the northeastern U.S. this winter may lead to an above-normal season for snowfall.” – Accuweather, today

Pacific Northwest & Northern California:  

“November and December will see the most action, before high pressure builds in and stormy weather eases back in late January and February.” – Accuweather, today

Southern California & Southwest:

“While moisture aims for the Northwest, warm and dry conditions will span much of the season for central and Southern California and the Southwest.”

“What precipitation does fall in California will aim primarily for the north, though it will fail to have the significance of last January when the region was hammered by heavy rain and snow.” – Accuweather, today

“Winter will slowly creep into the Southeast this season, as very mild air hangs on throughout the month of December.” – Accuweather, today

Northern Plains & Midwest:

“Old man winter won’t hold back in the northern Plains this season with shots of brutally cold air predicted to slice through the region.” – Accuweather, today

Southern Plains & Gulf Coast:

“Fall-like weather will linger into the winter season across the southern Plains and Gulf Coast, but a change will loom on the horizon.” – Accuweather, today
