November expected to be slightly warmer than normal

ABERDEEN, S.D. (WNAX) – While a La Nina is expected to impact weather across the northern plains this winter, the effects may take a while to build.

South Dakota State Climatologist Laura Edwards says November temperatures are expected to be above normal.


Edwards says precipitation chances look to be near normal.

Edwards says nothing dramatic stands out for the three-month outlook through January.

Past La Nina’s have led to cooler than normal temperatures through the winter for the northern plains.
