Traveling during the winter months can be a toss-up: Will your flight actually take off amid high winds and snowfall? Will you even be able to make it to the airport in the first place without the help of ice skates or your own dog sled squad? Well, fear not: A new predictive winter-weather map is here to help you plan accordingly.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this winter is going to be…interesting. Not only is there a 55 to 65 percent chance of a short-lived La Niña—which means more snowfall around the Great Lakes and Northern Rockies and less around the Mid-Atlantic—but winter in general is predicted to be a little off.

NOAA posits that from December through February, the South (and Hawaii) will be seeing drier-than-normal conditions while the North (and Alaska) may be a lot wetter than usual. As for the temperatures, most of the US is actually going to skew warmer—but Pacific Northwesterners should bundle up for potentially below-average chills.

Still, weather tends to change when you least expect it to (like at the last minute, when you’re already out the door, not prepared for the torrential downpour rolling in), and considering NOAA notes forecasts aren’t generally predictable more than a week in advance, it’s always good to have a plan B. Or, just book a super-cool hotel that functions as its own contained vacation in case Mother Nature isn’t working in your favor.

Here’s the one swimsuit style you need for your warm-weather winter getaway and some stylish pieces you can wear during cold-weather runs.
