If you like warmer-than-average temperatures you're in luck.

The National Weather Service has issued its 2009 Winter Outlook and according to the NOAA Climate Prediction Center, El Nino is expected to strengthen and persist throughout the winter months, acting as the dominant climate factor, influencing winter weather across the U.S.

The Climate Center is predicting warmer then average temperatures across much of the Western and Central United States from December through February with average precipitation.

The seasonal outlook does not predict where and when snowstorms may hit or seasonal snowfall accumulations. Snow forecasts are dependent upon winter storms which are generally not predictable more than several days in advance.
