Captain's Log

Happy Monday! :)

If you live in these blue shaded areas we don't need to remind you how cold this Spring has been! The first 3 weeks of April show the U.S. overall trending the coldest in over 30 years (most likely going to back to middle 1970s) and 3rd wettest in 30 years. CLICK ON IMAGES FOR LARGER VIEW.

The chart below shows national MAX Temperature trends since middle February which was above average but since early March it's been pretty much non stop below normal for the U.S. overall. The bars show the national temp trends vs average while the lines show the actual national hi/lo temps for the U.S. overall.

The next 2-weeks show the coldest spots on Earth to be in Central Siberia, North Pole and of course the Eastern half of the U.S.!!! Stormy as well and yes more chances of late snow for the northern half of the U.S. and hard frost and freezes deep into the South from Texas to Georgia next week with more reinforcing Arctic air. So, enjoy the huge warm up late this week into the weekend in the East as it will end next week. :(
