watch for couple of showers saturday morning then it it does turn colder by sunday. i'll tell was these balmy days are not going to last. as we go into december those persist 10 questions keep coming up. we have a unique look at the season to come. it's our cbs3 winter weather outlook. ♪ think you've seen it all. maybe not. the pattern this winter is complex and unusual. "eyewitness weather" team is hard at work analyzing the data. main factor is the big man to the west. justin tell us about it. >> that's right. el nino will be major player in our winter outlook. what is it all it is warmer than average ocean conditions across the central pacific. enough to disrupt the global weather patterns normally we have high pressure off the coast of peru. trade winds from blow from east to west pushing the warmer weather across the century pacific ocean but sometimes these pressure patterns reverse and then high pressure pushes the warmer water back closer to
south america. that warmer water brings a lot of moisture newspaper the southern united states during the winter which could impact our weather. >> this year this el nino pattern may be one of the top three strongest ever. however, this one is expected to weaken. warmest waters may be concentrated in the sentra pacific, that's called the central based el nino. this concentration has been linked to more snow in our region. >> the last time that kind of central based el nino happen the winter of 2009-2010. and who can forget that one. 78.7-inches of snow. but not all el nino winters end with lots of snow. consider 1997 to 1998. currently the strongest el nino winter on record. this el nino was east based which tends to be warm prone dues less snow. the winter of '97 hypenate left less than an inch all winter as you can see el nino winters tend to produce extremes but el nino
is not the only factor influen influencing this winter as lauren explains. >> el nino isn't the only climate pattern we look at also the north atlantic oscillation has a big impact on winter time winter. when it's in the positive phase more wintertime temperatures in the delaware valley. it also brings us more mixed precipitation events like freezing rain and sleet as opposed to snow. but if you like hot cocoa and snowmen the negative phase of nao is for you. cold arctic air will spill into the delaware valley, chillier itemmers and creased potential for snowfall. >> kate. >> thanks lauren. what does all of this mean for our winter? temperatures will romaine well above average through the first half of wint winter. but february into march could feature pronounced shots of arctic air. which leaves the big question, how much snow are we getting? >> i really would like to know how much snow we're getting this year. >> if you can ask me one question about this winter what
would it be. >> how much snow are we going to get? >> here's our projections for this winter. if the start of wintry mapes warm and the strong he wil el no holds this lipped will fall slightly below average. 18 to 24-inches. most of that will fall in a handful of big storms versus the bunch of smaller storms and the potential for ice storms will be greater this year. now it's important to remember that el nino produces extremes. this means we could be in for higher amounts. it's all about having the cold at the same time as the moisture and that's something that comes down to the day you just can't predict it three months in advance. i've gone way more in depth i mean way in more depth in the winter forecast online. you can find that at cbsphilly.com. it's important to note we don't have a whole lot of data on el nino winters some of them have been crazy snow winters. others the warm air wins out, doesn't match up with the cold and the snow and we don't get a whole lot at all this winter is very very interesting. slightly unique. >> matching up like you said,
cold, moisture. >> you get the cold i'm -- >> i'm rooting for below avera average. >> that's what most people are rooting for. >> come on blow. >> we shall see. >> thank you so much and the team. >> don joins us now with a look at sports. >> you boo the birds and now a player is booing. find out which philadelphia eagle took aim at the fans and it will be mark sanchez or sam bradford? the birds are looking for starting quarterback. we'll hear from both guys next in sports.

bucks lane said if we get down by any significant amount of points or we don't naked my first downs, we'll going to get booed. that's just kind of how it is. it's not really home field advantage playing here any more. really, that's the truth. cats here, they really don't care. about an hour later he took to twitter and tried to apologize. in fact he did apologize. my comment about the fans was out of line and i apologize. i'm just frustrated like they are about our performance on the field. the bottom line is that we need to give them a reason to cheer by scoring and winning games. we need to earn that home field advantage and i know that. they won't have to worry about home field advantage on thanksgiving day. they're visiting the three-seven detroit lions. who will be the quarterback? well, we don't know yet. mark sanchez and sam bradford practiced with the first teamers. bradford is recovering from a separated non throwing shoulder. >> i think we need this game, you know, about as bad as we've needed one all year, so like i said, i hope i'm out there. >> you got to have a short memory either way. good, bad or inn different.
