Weather Madness Winter Weather Forecast. The United States is poised to experience varied weather patterns in the upcoming months. With the emergence of El Niño, a southward shift in the storm track is anticipated during the winter. This is likely to result in wetter conditions for the southern states, while warmer air is expected to linger in the northern states. In contrast, Northeast Ohio may experience a drier winter overall, although the influence of El Niño is primarily on large-scale storm systems. Snowfall remains a possibility, especially through smaller-scale weather phenomena like lake effect.
As the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced El Niño's emergence over the summer, its impact is expected to become more pronounced from late fall through spring. El Niño conditions are projected to gradually strengthen throughout the winter, contributing to the overall weather dynamics across the country.
