AccuWeather Predicts Cold, Snowy Conditions For Illinois This Winter

The mild conditions Illinoisans enjoyed last winter most likely won’t return this winter. AccuWeather just released its annual weather forecast for winter 2020-2021. Senior Meteorologist Paul Pastelok says the 60 degree temperatures we enjoyed last Christmas are unlikely this winter.

Pastelok says they look at a lot of factors to determine the winter forecast, including the jet stream.

Pastelok doesn’t expect a Polar Vortex to dip down deep into the country this winter, but does expect Illinois will receive a blast of cold air early in the season.
