Warmer With Sunshine Each Day

Sunshine is the key word for the next several days. A benefit from the sunshine is that we'll see warmer temperatures as we progress through the week. There is a great explanation of the Arctic Oscillation and how when it turns POSITIVE that we see warmer winter weather.

As you might imagine, the Arctic Oscillation has been in the negative phase during most of our winter. We're also in a 'La Nina' weather and that typically gives us a warmer, wetter winter. For the 2010-2011 winter, this has not been the case. I believe our weather is more closely associated with our short term weather.   More on this phenomenon is available at the NWS-Southern Region HQ web site.
