Temperatures were generally a few degrees above normal across the region for the winter season. This was largely due to a warmer month of December, with six sites recording their second warmest December on record. The southern and eastern portions of the region experienced below normal precipitation, while areas to the west generally experienced slightly above normal precipitation.
NOAA’s Mid-Atlantic RISA Team (MARISA) created this outlook in partnership with NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program to inform the public about recent climate impacts within their respective regions.
