The Flip-Flopping Weather of ’07


In just three days the first 1/3rd of 2007 will be in the record books and so far it has been a year of weather flip-flopping. The year started with an unusually warm January which was followed by a an unusually cold February. In fact, the two months perfectly balanced each other with January 6.4F warmer than normal and February 6.4F colder than normal. March then flipped back to the warm side and April, so far, has been a bit cooler than normal. Here’s the scoop on average temperatures for each month of 2007 so far:

January: 38.7F 6.4F above normal
February: 29.1F 6.4F below normal
March: 45.1F 1.4F above normal
April: 49.9F 2.7F below normal (through 4/27)

So, will May keep the pattern going? The official 30 day outlook for May 2007 from the Climate Prediction Center shows an equal chance of warm or cold weather around here.
