North Carolina's winter is likely to be warm and dry. You can thank La Nina.

NOAA: The Fate Of This Year's Winter Forecast Lies In La Nina Turnout

The official outlook expects drier than normal conditions across the southern half of the United States, with wetter than normal conditions from parts of the northwest, across to the Great Lakes region.

Forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center released the U.S. Winter Outlook today, with La Nina potentially emerging for the second year in a row as the biggest wildcard in how this year's winter will shape up.

The Climate Prediction Center has come out with an early look at the Winter Forecast for 2017-2018. In fact, the Pacific Northwest has the highest odds of seeing colder-than-average temperatures.

Last winter was one of the warmest on record, and there were still a number of significant snowstorms.

Drier-than-normal conditions are most likely across the entire southern U.S. At the same time, warmer-than-normal conditions are most likely across the southern two-thirds of the continental U.S., along the East Coast, across Hawaii and in western and northern Alaska. It has extensive effects on the weather in North America and can affect Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons.

∙ Warmer-than-normal conditions are most likely across the southern two-thirds of the continental US, along the East Coast, across Hawaii and in western and northern Alaska.

Halpert said the southern U.S.is likely to be drier than normal, while the north from eastern Washington through the Great Lakes to update NY is likely to be wetter.

"Our models are kind of waffling in that area", Halpert said.

The agency's winter outlook will be updated on November 16.
