Missouri Winter Forecast 2023-2023 – The Bighorn Basin’s winter forecast is colder than normal — but what about the snow? Written by Andrew-Rossi on September 15, 2022
Winter forecasts call for below-average temperatures but varying amounts of snow across the state — and the Bighorn Basin appears to be caught between two different winters.
Missouri Winter Forecast 2023-2023
Autumn hasn’t started yet – the season officially ends on Thursday, September 22. But winter is coming. . .
Kendra Kent’s 2022 2023 Winter Prediction
The Old Farmer’s Almanac has released its forecast for the winter of 2022 – 2023. As expected, different regions of the United States will experience different winter intensities.
Overall, the Old Farmers Almanac predicts a “wet and mild” winter for most western states and a record cold and snowy winter for most eastern states for 2023.
That forecast is a “stark contrast” to the rest of the nation. The eastern and southern states of the US “should prepare for potentially record-breaking cold. Temperatures in the south could be up to 8°F below normal!
Winter Weather Outlook
The Old Farmer’s Almanac has 18 separate regional forecasts for the 48 contiguous states, Alaska and Hawaii. The Bighorn Basin is located in the middle of two regions: Texas-Oklahoma and the High Plains.
Based on these regional maps, the Bighorn Basin is right on the border between an above average or below average snow season.
A colder than normal winter is predicted for the Texas-Oklahoma region, “with the coldest periods in early to mid-January and early to mid-February.” However, precipitation will be below average, with the best chances for snow in mid to late January and early February.

In fact, a colder winter than normal is also expected in the High Plains. The coldest periods will be late November, early December, early January and early and late February.
However, the precipitation and snow fall above normal in the north and below normal in the south. The snowiest periods will be mid to late November, mid to late January and early February.
Fortunately, there is a caveat. While the Texas-Oklahoma region is expected to see less snow overall, “snowfall will be above average in the north.” That seems to balance everything out.

A likely interpretation of the confusing regional forecasts is that the Bighorn Basin will experience a colder than average winter with average – possibly above average – snowfall.

National Weather Service offices in the region have declared this week a winter weather preparedness week. The winter of 2021-2022 got off to an unbelievably warm start with a record December that was warmer than the average November. We then moved into a colder and more active pattern in January and February.
Farmers’ Almanac Predicts Chilly, ‘extreme’ Midwest Winter
Winters 2021-2022 and 2020-2021 were both La Niña years, and this is expected to be the trend again for the 2022-2023 season. La Niña is when the water over the equatorial Pacific Ocean is cooler than average. A third La Niña year is relatively rare, but conditions should begin to ease during the “neutral phase” of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, or ENSO.
In typical La Niña years, we see a wavy jet stream. The jet stream helps push systems our way and often separates warm air from cold air, putting mid-Missouri in the “battle zone.”
While mid-Missouri is in the “battle zone” between warm and cold air, temperatures are generally above average and precipitation is below average in the south. Temperatures will generally remain below average in the north with an above average chance of precipitation.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) winter forecast for the year favors this pattern, but does not give very strong indications for central Missouri.
In an average year we see about 15 to 18 inches of snowfall and expect to be right in the 15 to 20 inch range for the winter season. It has also become common for snow to continue in March and April. We will likely continue to see this trend, especially as we begin to move into the “neutral” ENSO phase.
Temperatures will often collide! We are likely to see large temperature swings from above average to below average temperatures, giving us an increased risk of ice mixes and ice storms.

For the winter of 2023, most of the US will be colder than normal this winter, although the summer of 2023 will be mostly warmer than normal.
Almanac Predicts ‘frigid Temperatures,’ Snow Nationwide This Winter
What defines time? Last Solar Cycle 24 had the lowest level of solar activity in over 100 years. We are now at the beginning of cycle 25, which is expected to peak around July 2025 and also bring reduced activity, meaning historically lower temperatures, averaged across the Earth. In addition to a neutral to possibly weak El Niño, key weather influences will include a continued warm phase of the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO), a neutral to positive North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), and a negative Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO). Oscillations are coupled ocean-atmosphere patterns that can have long-term effects on weather.
Predicts an upcoming winter that will be “wet and mild” – one with lots of (mostly) rain and temperatures that will be several degrees above normal. Specifically:
Winter for much of the Midwest and along the East Coast is best described as “cold and snowy.” The eastern half of the US would brace for a potentially season-setting record cold snap. This cold forecast extends into the Deep South and Texas, where the mercury could drop as low as 8°F below normal! Specifically:
