The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in its winter forecast that winter in D.C., Maryland and Virginia will be warmer than normal. 

The agency also said wetter-than-average weather can be expected in the northern part of the U.S. from December through February. 

There isn’t a part of the U.S. that’s favored to have below-average temperatures this winter, according to the prediction. 

Another three-month outlook will be released Nov. 21.

In August, the Farmers’ Almanac said winter around D.C. will be “frigid, freezing and frosty.”
