The Northeast could be spared from a harsh winter for the third year in a row, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The potential for another warmer-than-average winter is being driven by the presence of La Niña, an ocean-atmosphere phenomenon stationed in the Pacific Ocean that alters weather patterns worldwide.

For the Northeast, La Niña usually results in above-average temperatures and a wetter-than-average winter, but with a lack of big snowstorms or blizzards.

NOAA released its outlook for the winter of 2020-21 on Thursday, Oct. 15. You can view it here.
