The Climate Prediction Center has released the Winter Outlook for North Texas.
This year, temperatures are looking warmer and drier than average. This doesn't mean that we will not see any cold air or winter storms, just that the number and strength will be lower.
Over the past decade, winter in the southern plains has been warmer and this trend is likely to continue.
Below normal precipitation is expected and may cause a return to drought conditions. Right now, most North Texas Lakes are full. There will be a slight drop in lake levels, but nothing significant.
