Alabama May Have Cooler Winter Than Normal
The Associated Press
The National Weather Service says the upcoming winter might be cooler and wetter than normal in Alabama.
The agency's outlook for the upcoming winter says there's as much of a 50 percent chance that temperatures will be well below average across Alabama. The chances for a cold winter are greatest in southern counties.
The weather service says there's also a chance it will be wetter than usual in south Alabama, although the prediction for north Alabama is equal chances of a wet or dry winter.
Last winter was exceptionally cold and snowy east of the Rockies. Forecasters say a repeat of that extreme pattern is unlikely, although the outlook does favor below-average temperatures in Southern states in general.
