Winter Is Here....Huh?

Welcome to winter! Huh? I know, I know. Your calendar says winter starts December 22nd when the sun’s rays shine over the tropic of Capricorn. That’s astronomical winter. But in meteorology, we like to keep things simple.

The coldest quarter of the year is December through February. So we call those three months, meteorological winter. So here we go snow lovers….it’s only a matter of time before I’m ripping out my hair forecasting our next snow storm. In the short term, I don’t see much cool air until the end of next week.
