Winter 2021-2022 Weather Outlook

From the Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador Winter 2022 Newsletter

“The Climate Prediction Center is expecting La Nina conditions this winter. The winter 2021 (December, January, February) seasonal outlook calls for above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation across North and Central Texas. The outlook does not project snowfall as snow forecasts are generally not predictable more than a week in advance.

“One additional note, for those with any interest in the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO), recently the Climate Prediction Center issued a La Niña Advisory with La Niña favored to continue through winter 2021-22 (~95% chance) and then transitioning to ENSO-neutral during spring 2022 (~60% chance during April-June).

“Drought conditions have returned to the region, and with La Niña expected to prevail throughout the cold season, additional drought development is anticipated during the winter months.”
