Report: Iowa May Have A Warmer Winter

Iowa — Iowa could be in store for a warmer-than-normal winter ahead, according to the long-range forecast from the Climate Prediction Center.

State climatologist Justin Glisan says the report calls for a warming trend for the upper Midwest during the climatological winter, which runs from December 1st through February 29th.

A warmer winter might make you think we’d have less snow, but he says that’s not always the case.

Glisan says precipitation in Iowa varied from past winter seasons.

While the report predicts the winter ahead may be warmer for Iowa and the region, it shows above-average precipitation for much of the southeastern US, and below-average precip across parts of the north.
