Winter weather outlook

Amarillo, TX - Today's arctic weather has some wondering what we can expect for this winter.

The Farmer's Almanac is predicting below normal temperatures for this area, but says we can expect frosty and unusually wet weather.

However, The National Weather Service in Amarillo just released their winter outlook and their predictions are a little difference

"Slightly better chances for below normal precipitation and slightly better chances for above normal temperatures for this winter. So it looks like indications are at least from our end that we are not expecting anything epically cold or snowy"

Ordinarily most places across the Panhandle see around 18 inches of snowfall for the winter season.
