National Weather Service Says Long-Term Outlook Calls For Above-Normal Temps And Precipitation In The Bay Area


The San Francisco Bay Area is likely to be warmer and wetter than normal for the next three months, forecasters said.

A winter season outlook update shows a higher probability of above-normal temperature and precipitation for December, January and February, the National Weather Service said.

Not every day will be affected the same; the outlook deals in averages.

“The odds slant toward being above normal,” said Brian Garcia, a meteorologist for the weather service’s Bay Area forecast office in Monterey. “We’ll really have to see how it plays out on the finer time scale.”


Pressed to put that into more common language, Garcia said he wasn’t a betting man, but could borrow an illustration from gaming.

“If you went to the horse track and there was a horse that was favored to win, that’s the horse everybody’s going to look at, but it doesn’t guarantee that horse is going to win the race,” he said.

“Right now the odds are stacked with the wining horse being above-normal temperature and precipitation,” Garcia said.
The outlook divides the period into overlapping three-month chunks.

Above-normal precipitation is expected for December, January and February, and for January, February and March.


But precipitation probabilities change to an equal chance of above normal, near normal and below normal for February, March and April.

Above-normal temperature is forecast through April.

Everyone should take what weather guessers forecast with skepticism.
The current “climate change” hysteria is a fabrication by socialists to control the population.
1960s – Oil will run out in 10 years
1970s – Another Ice Age in 10 years
1980s – Acid rain will kill all crops in 10 years
1990s – The ozone layer will be gone in 10 years
2000s – Polar ice caps will be gone in 10 years
2010s – In 10 years, Greenland will have no glaciers due to global warming (per Al Gore).

These false narratives and apocalyptic proclamations are nothing more than manipulation and deceit.

an extreme probability that we might not extremely be normal… perhaps we should continue with extreme rhetoric and have an extreme increase in fees, taxes and costs for everyday living. Who knows, we may get an extreme exodus of earners from this state, with an extreme influx of illegals that we can heap extreme welfare benefits upon. Meanwhile, our guv, with his extremely greasy mane and his extreme snake oily delivery can run for prez, after extremely kissing Whinnie the Pooh’s sit-upon.
