KREM-2: Chief Meteorologist Jeremy LaGoo’s long-range winter forecast. An excerpt:

NOAA released its 2022-2023 winter forecast, and with cooler than normal equatorial Pacific sea surface temperatures, La Nina is present once again. That means a colder and wetter than average winter for the Northwest. The same forecast we saw the past two winters, but this one is different.

The atmospheric pattern that brings more moisture and cooler temperatures to the region is already present. It set up quickly, but the ridge over the Pacific and storm track over the Northwest is exactly the pattern that played into some of our biggest snow seasons ever recorded. Spokane has already recorded more than 7 inches of snow this November, that’s more than we saw through the middle of December last year.”
