A warmer winter on its way

No doubt it’s been cold this week. But have no fear, GW, this winter won’t be another Snowmaggedeon.

The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang published their annual winter outlook forecast Wednesday, predicting winter temperatures that could be the warmest in the last 140 years, accompanied by below-average snowfall.

There’s still a chance for some snow, however. Snowfalls could total about inches like they did two years ago, and likely won’t shut down the city like the historic snowfall of 2010.

Also, be sure to layer well: The weather gang also predicted that the weather this year could be volatile.

“We expect very little stability in our weather this winter, as the pattern should mostly be progressive and fast moving. Cold shots could be quite cold, but short-lived, and they should frequently be preceded and followed by more powerful warm shots,” they wrote.
