Cold Jet Stream and Storm will bring “winter conditions” to the western United States in the coming days

Winter conditions are expected to hit the western United States, a drought-stricken region characterized by wildfires and high temperatures, according to new weather forecasts.

A cold jet stream and storm system is causing wintry weather that will affect cities like Seattle, Sacramento and other cities in the region.

The forecast also contradicts previous weather forecasts.

AccuWeather Meteorologists said a change in weather patterns will end abnormally dry conditions from the approach of the storm.

The US weather forecast camp adds that this weather will change mainly bringing precipitation, mountain snow and cooler conditions.

This week, meteorologists expect passing weather systems to cause travel delays, relief from drought and wintry conditions.

A forecaster from AccuWeather meteorologist Haley Taylor said this was made possible because the incoming storm will allow a colder airflow to enter the region from the United States.

As a result, cooler temperatures are expected in the coming days.

NOAA US Winter 2022 Outlook

On October 20, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) published his US Winter 2022 Outlook report, the drought forecast will persist in the Great Plains, parts of the western United States and other parts of the country.

The looming drought threat will coincide with an ongoing La Nina weather phenomenon for the third year in a row during the winter season.

In particular, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) has released predictions that the climate model will result in warmer than average temperatures in the southwestern United States, Gulf Coast, and eastern United States. States between the months of December and February.

NOAA has predicted that there will be drier than average conditions in the southern United States with an increase in wet weather.

Similar conditions would be possible in parts of the Ohio Valley, the Great Lakes, the northern Rockies and the Pacific Northwest.

Due to the unpredictable nature of weather and climate, other regions of the North American nation are possible during the said period.

NOAA forecasters also worked with the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS)which said drought conditions are present in 59% of the country, with parts of the western United States, the southern Great Plains will be hardest hit during the winter season.

Conflicting winter forecasts

The NOAA and NIDIS drought predictions for the United States this winter could potentially contradict the following predictions for December in the days and weeks ahead.

For example, a separate but linked forecast of the National Weather Service (NWS) shows the prevalence and persistence of cold weather systems affecting the US West and East Coast in recent days.

This week alone, mountain rainfall and snowfall has occurred in the Pacific Northwest, which experienced a completely different weather scenario two weeks ago when forecasts by US weather authorities for further drought and droughts will further exacerbate high temperatures and ongoing wildfires, especially in California and other places.

As for AccuWeather’s latest forecast, a full winter season could replace existing winter drought forecasts if the cold jet stream and storm system continues in the region.
