Winter weather outlook for central North Carolina

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Last winter wasn't all that snowy for central North Carolina.

The area came nowhere close to the average of six to seven inches. This year could be a repeat performance if the winter outlook released by NOAA pans out.

The forecast calls for a drier than normal winter for the Tar Heel State, and a winter with near normal temperatures.

National Weather Service officials believe there is a chance the drought could make a comeback this winter, but with water usage down during the cooler months, any effects would not be felt until the spring and summer of next year.

But even with the drier forecast, only one big storm can have a major impact on the area.
