With the arrival of El Nino, the discussion in recent days is which states will get more snowfall this winter and those that won’t.

Oklahoma? According to the Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, will get more snow as El Nino lasts into spring. A map released by the Center shows more snow in the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles as well as the Four Corners region.

The Center predicts the southern third to half of the U.S. will likely be wetter this winter.

Researchers predict there will be less snow than normal in Oregon, Washington, New York and Pennsylvania.
