OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — We've heard a bunch of different predictions about the upcoming winter weather, as the National Weather Service says expect a mild winter with brutal cold snaps.

NWS Meteorologist Brett Albright says the fall will be colder with less precipitation, but winter will experience above average temperatures with more precipitation.

He also adds, this year's outlook is harder to predict because of the lack of indicators, like El Nino.

Albright added this will also make it hard to determine the amount of snow melting into the Missouri Basin this spring.

"We will definitely be watching after the last two years a lot of high water along the Missouri to see how that snow pack develops as we go through the winter of the Northern Plains and Rockies," Albright said.

Our team of Meteorologists at KMTV will have their winter weather outlook coming later in mid-November.
