North Plains 2014-2015 Winter Forecast

This is a regional winter forecast for the North Plains region. For more winter forecasts, please visit the 2014-2015 Winter Forecast Directory.

The Weather Centre
Temperatures should be between two dominant air masses. I expect the eastern part of this region (i.e. eastern Dakotas into Minnesota, part of Nebraska) to see below normal temperatures, while the western portion (Montana into Wyoming and Colorado) should expect warmer than normal conditions. Between these two outlooks, relatively normal temperature anomalies should prevail.

Precipitation should be average to below-normal, with the below-normal anomalies confined to the western part of this region. Around normal precipitation values can be anticipated elsewhere.

Snowfall is a big question mark. Right now, above normal snowfall is favored in the Nebraska/South Dakota corridor into Minnesota, with below-normal snowfall in the Rockies around the Front Range. Depending on how this fall unfolds, this snowy corridor may shift.
