National Weather Service Releases Winter Outlook For Entire U.S., Illinois Has First Frost Advisory For Season


Chicago Meterologist Cheryl Scott alerted all of the Chicago region at 4:33PM today via her Twitter account that the National Weather Service had released their 2021-2022 Winter Weather Outlook for all of the U.S. 

Cheryl has what some people may call GOOD news, and others may not see as such great news. Cheryl says Chicago falls into a region of the outlook that will be wetter this winter.

The National Weather Service published a video on their YouTube channel yesterday that explains temperature, precipitation, and drought up until February 2022. 

NWS states that the Great Lakes region is in line for some heavier than normal precipitation, and also stated:

  • The Upper Mississippi Valley and small areas of the western Great Lakes have equal chances for below-, near- or above-average temperatures

Here's the seasonal precipitation map 

ABC 7 Chicago's Greg Dutra has local Chicago weather, and weather for the areas outside of Chicago, and it includes the season's first frost advisory.
