Daily Weather Briefing for Monday, February 3, 2020

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Outlook

An upper-level ridge will move overhead today and will drive high pressure off the Southeast Coast, pumping unseasonably warm air over the region for at least the first half of the week. Meanwhile, a slow-moving cold front will approach the region from the west on Tuesday. Moisture along the front will be very high, leading to widespread and potentially heavy rain for Wednesday and Thursday as the front moves through. Severe weather is possible Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. Drier and colder air will return Friday behind the cold front.

Groundhog Day Prognostications

According to the old English saying:

If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Winter has another flight.
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Winter will not come again.

The Macon Media whistle pig (Thunder Pig) says six more weeks of winter due to clear skies in Franklin on the morning of Groundhog Day (aka Candlemas).

For those too lazy to click the link and read the article, the southern hogs (and one white squirrel) say we’re in for six more weeks of winter. The northern hogs were divided on the issue. [LINK]
