Winter weather could be a wild card this year

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Officially, Winter may still be six weeks or so away, but now might be a good time to make sure you’ve got your shovel, snow tires, hat, gloves and boots.

The current NOAA outlook for the Pacific Northwest region favors above normal temperatures and equal chances of below, normal, or above average precipitation through February.

But what does that mean for snow fall in Portland this winter?

In this week’s Your Weather Podcast, KOIN Meteorologist Kelley Bayern breaks down the science behind ENSO-Neutral winters, what exactly that term means, and how neutral years can provide wildcard winters in Portland.

She dives into previous winter trends for a deeper look into the odds of snowfall in Portland this year.
