Arleen is the expert, and this is what she says…
February forecast… Temperatures will be around average. We have the potential to see average precipitation & near average snowfall in the first 10 days of the month. That’s in thanks to the MJO moving into the eastern Pacific sector. We’ll dry out mid month. But look for another system the 3rd week of February and a few systems the last week of February. We should wrap up February with above average precipitation & snowfall. El Niño is finally acting like it should!
