Prescient Prediction

Way back on the first ever post on this blog (“The winter thus far“) I talked about the incredible warmth of December and early January and how some climate researchers were already claiming that 2007 would be the warmest year in recorded history. However, at the very bottom of the discussion I made this prediction…

The computer models and climate teleconnections such as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and Eastern Pacific Oscillation (EPO) suggest that the coldest weather of the winter is on its way for the next few weeks. I don’t expect that the Mid-South will bear the brunt of the cold air (that will be the Northeast), but I do expect that by the middle of February, many of us will be looking forward to spring.

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely looking forward to spring.
