Where is SPRING??
If you’re wondering why the springtime weather is taking its sweet, sweet time to show up, you’re definitely not alone. Winter is having itself a grand old time sticking around in many parts to the United States, like that awkward last party guest who just hasn’t gotten the hint they need to leave. In fact we had, three different storm systems that set cold-weather records, and dumped snow in many parts of the country where t-shirt season should have already been in full swing. Could you hear that collective ughhhh?
So what gives!?! Here’s what you need to know.
Why is it still so cold this late in the year & when will it warm up?
Two words: polar vortex. An upper level low pressure system anchored up in Canada is currently pushing a wave or Arctic air downward in what is hopefully the death rattle of this year’s winter season. It, unfortunately, may stick around until May. The polar vortex “lobe” that’s causing all the cold will likely retreat northward to Canada hopefully before Mother’s Day… So don’t pack away those long johns just yet and
make sure to check out your farmer’s almanac for the dates to start planting…No beating the Jones’s to the seed planting this year….Carl!!!
<<<STAY WARM OUT THERE>>>
