Winter is About to Wither Away


On the Feb. 27 edition of U.S. Farm Report, AgDay meteorologist Mike Hoffman gave his latest 90-day weather outlook. And while it’s less than three weeks until the first day of spring, he says many should be able to put away their winter coats a little early this year.

That’s not to say winter 2015/16 won’t try and make a last gasp. Hoffman says most of the southern two-thirds of the U.S. could see a colder-than-normal March.

“[We’ll see] below-normal from Nebraska to Texas, back to the Four Corners into the Southeast,” he says.

In April and May, expect to see normal or above-normal temperatures unless you live in the Southwest, he adds.
