March of Winter/s End

Meteorological winter...defined as the three coldest months (DJF)...comes to a close in a few days but winter wx can and does continue throughout March over much of New England.

The latest monthly temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) indicates above normal mean temperatures over the western quarter of the CONUS. The warm anomaly suggests the expected position of the mean long wave ridge axis.

If there/s a ridge in the west...then it follows there/ll be a trof in the east...which is good news for squeezing another storm or two out of this otherwise disappointing winter.
