U.S. weather officials are predicting a mostly warmer than normal winter, but they are also worried about a worsening drought. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its winter outlook Thursday.

It predicts that two-thirds of the nation will have a toasty winter. The northernmost parts of the nation will likely be an exception to that. Forecasters see a dry winter for all of the south from coast-to-coast.

That could worsen an already bad drought. However, they say it should be a wet winter from Oregon and Washington to Michigan, dipping down to the Ohio Valley.
