Brutal is the best way to describe it. Siberia and NAO correlations go all out on a cold and stormy pattern for the East US in this final month of winter. Bone-chilling temperatures are likely to reach as far south as the southeastern states like Georgia and Alabama, possibly flirting with the fragile Southeast winter agriculture economy. Farmers should prepare now for a deep chill nationwide. Northern Plains residents will bear a huge brunt as February delivers several punches to the gut of pure cold. The Northeast continues with its -NAO pattern, and the cold only enhances any snow potentials.
|NOTE: Confidence is lowered in the forecast for the Plains and Midwest.|
