The Winter that Was !
When the winter forecast was issued last fall for the south, it appeared that the weather patterns were setting things up so that we would have above normal temps and below normal precipitation, after all, it was based on a La Nina winter pattern weather which generally favors those conditions for the southern portion of the United States when that type of pattern is present. Well, so far that has not been the case at all. It now appears that the colder than normal weather will stay with us on into March ! There is even the possibility that we have yet to see the worst of the cold!!! Also, there appears to be a possibility of several snow and or ice events as well. That's what I love about the weather- it is such a misunderstood procees and not an exact science. The best thing to do is to , as I have often said at the end of my blogs, STAY TUNED !!! Rex
