(Jefferson County) This week is recognized as Winter Weather Preparedness Week.
We had a chance to speak with Meteorologist Alex Elmore with the National Weather Service in St. Louis about the weather outlook for the upcoming winter months.
Elmore says a La Niña weather pattern will be present across the Pacific Ocean throughout the majority of the winter.
While not uncommon during the winter, we asked Elmore if thunderstorms will be more common this winter season with the warmer conditions possible.
And of course you can’t talk about a winter weather outlook without asking the chances of snowfall and a white Christmas this year…
Winter Weather Preparedness Week runs through Friday.
