The Climate Prediction Center released its three-month winter outlook for November, December and January. How does it look for NOLA? The outlook calls for near-average temperatures and wetter-than-normal conditions across the Gulf South including New Orleans.
Near-average temperatures would be a change for us after a stretch of warmer-than-normal weather in our area. September was the third-warmest on record, and October could go down as the warmest on record.
Earlier this year, May, June and July were in the top five warmest at the New Orleans airport. Records there date from 1946.
