Does anyone ever go and read the blog Bering Sea Rule ? Sort of interesting and their method of forecasting predicted a major severe outbreak between Feb 15 and 23. This forecast was on Jan 23. It very well might not happen but it is interesting. I have sort of kept up with it the last couple years and they seem to be good at picking up major patterns way before models.
http://blog.organicforecasting.com/?m=1They use weather occurring in the Bering Sea to forecast what will happen here in 2.5 to 3 weeks.
Well after today looks like light jackets & short sleeves are up. Heck looks like shorts on Sun.! Everything will be budding & blooming or close to it after the next 10-15 days. So here is to hopefully no hard freeze because there is no turning back nature. Gosh take away the 2" we had & this would be worst winter ever. Almost a shut out. Will be interesting to see ranking of how warm this winter was & how many times below freezing temps. were achieved. & what average temps. thru the winter were.
I'd say it's almost a guarantee we'll have at least a few more nights near or below freezing, and probably even a hard freeze at some point. It's way too early for stuff to be blooming out. But like you said, you can't turn back nature. Hopefully, the damage won't be too bad.
If we hard freeze I just hope it is early March and not late March-April. It would be a disaster if it is late March-April.
Eastern Red Cedar (Juniper) pollen has already reached Spring time levels, and I can feel it. Allergies I usually acquire a month from now have already kicked it. There are literally forests of Cedar around here on old abandoned farms, so there's no escaping it.
EPS getting nearly unanimous on a significant cool down in 2 weeks. Its starts with a major arctic front in the northern plains then moves south and east to bank up against the apps. I have a feeling severe weather season may have to wait until later in March if this is the case.
