Groundhog Day

Happy Groundhog Day!

After a cold start in January, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow to signify 6 more weeks of winter. While this is all folklore carried on from European tradition, but how do you feel about the thought of 6 more weeks of winter? In essence, if you don't like the cold and chilly weather in the future, blame the groundhog and not the weatherman.

I do relatively agree with Phil's outcome, but I think we can say temps will potentially stay slightly below normal. This is reflected in our immediate 7Day forecast and typical El Nino trends.

Our big focus this week is on Thursday's rain event. A lower level Low pressure system will shift through the state on Thursday trailed by the upper level low. This has the opportunity to dump 1" to 2" in the area.
