A 'normal' winter

Winter is just around the corner and experts are now predicting how rough of a season it will be.

"I really think we're going to have a pretty close to normal winter," says UNL Climatologist, Al Dutcher.

What does 'normal' mean?

Dutcher says the pressure system that was over Nebraska that directed storms away from the state in years past might not be present this year.

He predicts old man winter could bring us a good amount of snow.

"I say we have a very good chance this year of seeing a white Christmas," says Dutcher.  "That's in comparison to the last couple of year where we've been virtually void of any significant snowfall for a length of time during the vast majority of the winter."

November 79th is "Nebraska Winter Weather Awareness Day".
