Mild Winter Weather Expected

November 29, 2007

ASHEVILLE, N.C. --- The latest National Climatic Data Center forecast is calling for a mild winter, continuing a decade-long trend. Temperatures for December through February are expected to be similar to last year's months --- 4 percent warmer than the 30-year average. The center said that the Northern Hemisphere this year is the warmest since record-keeping began 127 years ago, USA Today reported. Temperatures for January through October averaged 1.3 degrees above what's normal.In the U.S., the period from January to October was the seventh-warmest since records began in 1895. The warmest year for that period was 2000. The second warmest was 1934.This year's Atlantic hurricane season was less active than forecasters expected. Six hurricanes developed; nine were predicted, the Los Angeles Times reported. A research team at Colorado State University attributed this to cooler water and the presence of wind shears in the central tropical Atlantic.
