Our temperature has averaged below normal for the month of February. So when will we finally see a glimpse into warmer temperatures?
Long range models are continually predicting shades of warmer days ahead. The first week of March will be similar to the past few weeks, but the second week of March should see a change. the cold arctic air will retreat North of the Dixie line and allow us to finally see consecutive days in the upper 60's and possibly 70's. A more typical spring-time weather pattern will become active in relative form.
Near March 8/9 a noticeable mid-latitude cyclone will transverse across the central portion of the country, and this might be a potential severe weather event for the Mississippi River Valley. The variables of warm temps and more moisture will be a welcome characteristic to many.
