it was 55 degrees out to day in Kansas. tomorrow its going to be in the 60s, what gives? i like this nice weather a lot but it makes me wounder what is really going on here. look at the next 10 days weather for kansas upper 40s to the 60s
not very winter like right. this year in Wichita ks we had a sprinkling of snow, not even enough to cover the road.

so what could be causing this odd winter temps? should we be alarmed as to what the summer is going to bring? i always though if the winter is mild the summer is wild. so are we going to be looking at a massive drought and heat wave this summer?

to me its way strange for this time of year. so what is your take on the current weather patterns we are having?


and winter feel free to come back at any time i want to go ice fishing

Well, I live in the mountains of BC Canada and it started raining today...that and the issue with a cricket on my door step today tells me something is wrong here.

We have ice, snow and cold....And today we have melting, rain and insects...In January...In CANADA?

I don't get it and have never seen this.

Peace

The sun.
It's been pretty active, let's enjoy the warmer temps while they last. We're probably going to get some huge snowfalls in March - April.

You asked a good question as to what the summer may bring. I am going to see if I can find the climatology reports from similar years to this winter, but what you will find is that many of them have near average to below average summer temperature wise. At least for my area...

Let me see if I can find any for that region though...

you think we will have some late snow fall this year, idk. i think its going to be early summer and just get hotter as we go through the summertime.

From what I understand, this unseasonably warm winter is caused by El Nina. The pacific currents affect the jet streams path and location.

They..."meteorologists” predict that the jet stream will be moving south again in the near future, bringing with it winter.

I’m looking forward to see how it pans out, but I predict that when it does, it will be nasty. Wet Snow, vs. the fluffy stuff. Always makes driving a adventure and hazardous.

I think the steady influx of solar flares is causing it to be warmer than normal. It will be in the 70s tomorrow down here in Texas, and no rain in sight. We haven't had rain the entire month of January, and it doesn't look like any is coming in the next week.

The bugs are coming out because they go by temperature and not the calendar. We've had flies, bees, wasps, and scorpions waking up like it is spring. They're confused, and so are the plants and trees.

This year seemed to go from fall to spring with really nothing in between.

These past two weeks we've had like 7 days where it's been above 66 degrees here in the DFW area.

We've also only had one slight snowfall and that's it.

Last year at this time it was 12 degrees with 8 inches of snow. Right now it's 53 and clear and the rest of the week looks to be the same...with 3 days above 70 www.wunderground.com...

Seems the NCDC is having problems loading pages right now, so I will try again tomorrow to get the actual info for you, or if you'd like to go poking around yourself and see if you can get the pages to load you can do so yourself.

www.ncdc.noaa.gov...

Here's also the climatology page for Wichita, KS...though the data they have on their specific page only goes back to 1997, where the NCDC pages should go back to 1887.

I don't know, check the Farmer's Almanac for this Winter/Spring seasons. The Almanac has the best record of forecasting, taking into account the variables of the sun & the moon.
I personally think we are going to get hit hard March/April like we did in late October 2011, at least the east coast USA will I believe.

ETA:

For the winter of 2011–12, the Farmers’ Almanac is forecasting “clime and punishment,” a season of unusually cold and stormy weather. For some parts of the country, that means a frigid climate; while for others, it will mean lots of rain and snow.
