If any of you have stepped outside recently, you can attest to the fact that this winter’s cold snap has brought us record-breaking numbers and more frozen pipes than we can even handle. And even though much of the eastern and southern U.S. is experiencing much warmer than average weather this week, a wide swath of the country is still in the deep freeze, with wind chills in the teens and single digits across much of the Plains, the Southwest and the Northwest.
This bitterly cold air even can make it too cold to snow across regions of the country that normally see double-digit snowfall amounts each year. That’s right, we said it is too cold to snow in some regions of the U.S. Now that’s saying something if it’s too cold to even snow?! So in an effort to better prepare yourself and brace what is to come, we thought we’d give you a breakdown of our energy predictions so that you can have a better idea as to what is causing energy prices to fall and rise throughout the country. The remainder of February continues to look bitter cold. Temperatures will dip to 3 degrees on Friday. We will see a relief from the extreme cold next week with high temperatures in the mid-30s to low-40s. There is finally some above-normal temperatures in the mid-50s forecasted for the middle of March.
Well there you have it. Hopefully, you’ve learned a thing or two and are prepared enough to take on the rest of this winter. Good luck and stay warm!
