Earlier this week on Regional Radio News, we outlined the start to the winter is mirroring what we experienced last year.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Chris Miller says we can anticipate another cold and wet winter as we navigate through January, February, and even March. Wet weather could linger into the spring season as well.
There are already a lot of similarities between this winter and last winter. Miller says anyone near rivers, creeks or streams should be concerned along with anyone in the ag industry.
The cold of this past January and February was record-setting. Miller says we could easily have a repeat of that again this January and February.
Miller says it is generally rare for temperatures to get at or below zero, but not uncommon. He says to be prepared for the dangerous cold and be sure to check on neighbors who could be susceptible to it.
