I have watched and examined weather patterns all summer long to be able to offer as accurate information as possible regarding the coming 2014 winter. As we enter into the Autumn now, the stage is being set. I still see February, 2014 as being almost as severe as I mentioned in my previous blogs. I say almost, because I’ve seen counter patterns be applied to influence the results. By this I mean, we did have some high temperatures during the summer which help to influence and bring the following winter temperatures up. This was not enough to negate the winter, 2014 experience completely, but anything that helps is welcome.
The effects of the hotter summer will mostly benefit the southeastern states, by the cumulative effects weakening the fronts that will bring the temperatures and storms down to that area. Just don’t breathe a sigh of relief, yet. At this point, I see our prayers more helping people be able to go through the situations than changing the weather during this time.
