Thunderbolt 12: NOAA predicts warmer, wetter winter season. Here's what New Jersey residents think
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is predicting a warmer and wetter winter. They're also predicting slightly above normal precipitation - meaning either rain, snow or ice.
However, the Farmers’ Almanac is calling for a winter wonderland, meaning over 25 inches of snow for Newark. Snowflakes could fly as early as November. It predicts that the snowiest conditions will come at the end of December, late January and mid-February. But don't expect a white Christmas. The Farmers’ Almanac is also predicting milder temperatures.
