Light to moderate snow showers continue this Wednesday morning with cold temperatures to start the day. Roads are *very* icy and snow packed throughout southeast Colorado... so please allow extra time for the morning drive. Throughout the midday and afternoon, we'll keep the chance of some light, fine snow showers, but expecting minor accumulations through the day. Snow looks to finally push out this evening/overnight and our warm up begins. Head over to the "Weather' tab for a full look at the forecast.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Government forecasters say this winter looks to be cold and wet across the northern tier of states, and the drought will worsen in the South, where conditions are expected to be warmer and drier than usual.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that like last winter, the Pacific Ocean cooling known as La Nina is affecting the weather.
Mike Halpert, who's deputy director of the agency's Climate Prediction Center, says snowfall is likely to top the usual amounts from the Northwest to the Great Lakes and the Ohio and Tennessee river valleys.
He says dry conditions could extend from Southern California east across drought-stricken Texas and Oklahoma and along the Gulf Coast into Florida and possibly north to Virginia.
