SEATTLE -- Hey everyone, there's a good chance El Nino might be around for next winter!
California: "Yay! The expected heavy rains next winter should help our drought!"
Midwest and East Coast: "Yay! It likely means no more of this 'Polar Vortex' and weeks below freezing!"
Gulf Coast and Eastern Seaboard: "Yay! It typically means less hurricanes!"
Pacific Northwest: *sigh*
It's not really a tale of two cities, but more like a tale of two halves of a nation -- one basking in their warmest winter on record; the other wondering if they've become the new Antarctica.
With March signaling the end of "meteorological winter" (December 1 through Feb. 28), cities are crunching their data to find some surprising results!
I am a big sucker for weather photography and time lapse video, and was recently pointed to a few new time lapse videos that have been released recently that really show the power of Mother Nature.
LEAVENWORTH, Wash. -- To say Stevens Pass ski resort got a little bit of snow this month is to say a few people showed up Downtown for the Seahawks Super Bowl Parade.
The ski resort said Thursday that so far this month, they have received 160 inches of snow -- over 13 feet! -- making it the second snowiest February in the last 50 years up there. It's been only upstaged by the epic winter of 1998-99 that had 226 inches at Stevens Pass in February and overall set the world record for seasonal snow at Mt. Baker.
