I took a look at forcasts for North America this winter and came up with this map on neoweather.com. If this is the way it goest things do not look too bad for the southeast US palm areas. It does look bad for the northern plains where my parents live. And, if possible I hope to get there in the winter, as I can not make it before.

Those are some bold predictions; Well below and well above average for a fairly large percentage of the lower 48 this far in advance.

I just talked to my parents in Montana. And, they are already experiencing some cool weather and it looks like it will get colder.

The Arctic Oscillation is forecast to stay very positive through at least Dec. 15. With the 2 week delay, that means there will be no sustained blocking high pressure over Greenland. That in turn means no sustained cold in the eastern US through at least the 3rd week of December.

And...that's music to my ears!!! We could use a warm winter, I'm getting ready to start potting up ALOT of palms. I want to make the 14th Annual Spring Extravaganza Sale the best ever! Right Tom?

So far knock on wood, the display above has been right on. It has been a very easy winter so far. We have had 12 inches of needed rain since December 1 and only 6 nights with freezing temps. Our lowest has been 26F. We have yet to have a daytime high temp below 40F. Firespikes, Justicia, Sophora, and Cercis are already blooming.

Well, I suppose you Gulf Staters and Peninsula lovers are happy about the forecast, but up here in corn country we're having quite a chuckle about the "Below Average" stripe that runs through the state...
