Official 2012-2013 Winter Forecast: South Plains

Temperature forecasts for the South Plains are relatively unsure, as a ridge in the Northwest could tip the scales for the upper part of the South Plains, but a cool down in the Southeast could also have an effect on the region in question. To be on the safer side, I decided to point the warmth in the north and the cooler weather more towards the Southeast. Be warned, this could go either way.

In the precipitation department, a charged sub-tropical jet stream will get the El Nino going and pump storm systems through the area. Severe weather is also possible with these systems, as the proximity to the Gulf of Mexico and jet stream winds may combine to form at least a couple active days of weather.
I did appoint a dry area of weather, as the Midwest and Ohio Valley's typical El Nino dryness will continue in the northeast reaches of the South Plains. Some icy weather may occur with a cool weather outbreak across the northern part of the nation.
