Mother Nature is not tipping her hand as to exactly what type of Fall and early Winter we can expect to close out the year. The Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service is out with its three month look ahead for October through December and Cleveland National Weather Service Meteorologist Kristen Yeager tells AkronNewsNow it s a very unclear forecast. " The Climate Prediction Center is predicting equal chances for both temperature and precipitation, so basically what that means is there are equal chances for the temperature to be above or below normal, and also equal chances for the precipitation to be above or below normal."
Yeager says there are now extreme weather patterns on the horizon.
" When they issue a forecast that says equal chances, it basically means that there are no significant indicators to show us that it's going to be above or below normal," says Yeager.
The National Weather Service is calling for a warmer than usual October but can't predict how much precipitation we'll receive.
She says the picture may clear as each month progresses, but for now there are no major weather patterns that should bring any big surprises.
