      First things first, the long range outlooks are trending to a colder second half of February. So I haven’t given up on a measurable snow yet. We will see and I will talk more about that in future posts. I have been concerned over the last few weeks about the coming spring severe season.

      After having computer issues, I am finally updating this blog. The number one question on everyone’s mind is if we are going to get any snow to speak of this year. We just can’t seem to get things to come together.

      In the thick of winter, the common wisdom is that when you are gearing up to take your truck out in the cold and snow, you should step outside, start up your engine, and let it idle to warm up.

      There are a great many changes taking place across the northern hemisphere in regards to the weather.  In fact, there is so much going on that it is hard to keep up with and therefore, confidence in the outlooks is a best guess situation. So let’s start in the short term.

      It has been bone dry in Kentucky and especially western Kentucky for the past 8 weeks. On top of that, while temperatures have been cooler recently, that are still a few degrees above normal for the most part.

      Daylight saving time ended at 2:00 A.M. on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016, as clocks were set back an hour. I have been going through this ritual for years and never stopped to find out much about it. So I’ve done my research.

      I am looking at the weather too much lately. But now there are new signs that something is up. This time it isn't in the tropics. The teleconnections are going deeper than I have seen them in years. Almost to the extreme.
