Winter is expected to be another cold one in the eastern half to two-thirds of the nation with above-normal temperatures, on average, in the West.

  • Snowfall will be above normal in most of the Northeast.
  • Florida will have above-normal rainfall, while most of the southeastern and central states will have below-normal precipitation.
  • We expect above-normal snowfall from eastern Arizona into the Big Bend of Texas and above-normal rainfall from parts of inland Washington into the northwest corner of Montana and just north of California’s Bay region.
  • Other areas in the western third of the country, including most of California, should have below-normal precipitation.

Well, I live in NW Florida

Well, I live in NW Florida (the Panhandle), Gulf Coast area, and it is now Feb. 28th, last day of Feb. 2015, we are still in the 30's at night, so I would say no early Spring, if anything it will be late.

But I am hoping for a fast change. We have been realllly COLD since mid November, and the Northeast is sick of this winter also.

For seed planters (of note), I planted some tomato seeds a month ago in small pots indoors, gave them sun when possible (been very cloudy, rainy winter),but only keep my house at 67 degrees F at night while sleeping. Well, they came up about 1/2" and they just sit there. It's been about 2 weeks now.

I work a lot, but they get my utmost attention when I am home.

LOL, they have not died but refuse to grow until it gets warmer......hah, I can't blame them.
