What to Expect Temp-Wise in Minnesota This Winter
Did anybody else close their eyes and whisper "please don't suck, please don't suck" when they clicked to see the results? Winters here sincerely kick my butt, so when I see these predictions they at least give me an ounce of hope that we will have a decent winter. Well, that is what they are predicting this year - a warmer than average season. YES!!!!!!!!
Bring me the News reports, that the December-February temperature outlook shows that most of Minnesota will have "a 50 percent chance of above average temps." So you're telling me there's a chance? I hate when they say a 50% chance. Like cool, it may or may not suck. Whatever, I'm choosing to be optimistic with this one.
Why are they predicting warmer weather? El Niño – the warming of the Pacific Ocean that happens every two to seven years.
What is the average temp in Rochester in the winter? December - 26, January - 22 and February - 27. If we can stay above those marks, and out of the below zero range, I'll be a happy Minnesota girl.
