Depends on where you are. NW Tennessee was below normal the first half of February. The second half not so much. We ended up above normal but not by near as much as over your way.

Yeah, I remember that now.  While we had a week of 70's & 80's in the east, west and middle was under the rain train.  I do know we haven't had a stretch of warm weather similar to that since.

Looks like a nasty ice storm for the Great Lakes region at the end of the NAM run:

We do have a Flash Flood Watch, Blowing Dust Advisory, Red Flag Warning, and Wind Advisory all in the same general region.  That is a pretty interesting combo of products.

Good- after the wind kicks up the dust and the spreads the wildfires, the floods will settle the dust and put out the fires.

NAM & GFS both continue to show snow flying in the air come Monday, especially over eastern areas.  Temperatures by Tuesday morning will be around freezing or a little below in the eastern valley. 

Winter keeps spitting in our direction now that we're ready for spring.  I guess he's not happy about the low grades given to him for this year's performance.

This is like requesting a professor to change your grade one month after the semester has ended and the grades have already been posted. Winter, the opportunity to earn your grade was from December to March. You cannot invent your own extra credit assignments in April, nor will they be accepted. You got a D. Showing up for class for two weeks in January doesn't count, and everyone noticed you let Spring take your quizzes in February.

Another huge blizzard for almost the exact same areas next weekend. For us, just about the same. Just not seeing the robust and prolonged warm environment needed for any outbreaks of severe weather east of the MS.

Iím heading to Wisconsin where thereís just an advisory just south of the warning area. Could be an interesting drive.
Well just checked again and Random Lake Wisconsin has been upgraded to a warning.
