We don't report the weather, we put the weather into perspective and tell you how it will impact your farm or business a year from now! Our 12-time award winning year-ahead forecasting technology uses math/statistics and 24 climate cycles, a completely different methodology than traditional meteorology which is physics/modeling based. It's a battle of beliefs - our way vs their way - and we don't change our forecasts once issued. With weathertrends360 you'll be proactive instead of reactive with Mother Nature's ever-changing conditions. We hope you enjoy Better Weather with Captain Kirk.
What a difference a year makes. On this date last year we were talking about epic cold and snow across the U.S. with the coldest conditions in decades. Snow was blanketing over 50% of the country. Fast forward to today...temperatures across the country are trending a whopping 30 to 45 degrees warmer than last year. The Des Moines, Iowa area takes the top spot trending 45 degrees warmer than last year. LARGER MAP VIEW
The snowfall maps also tell the warmer story with 17% of the U.S. covered in snow today but this time last year it was 50.4% according to NOAA. The season-to-date snowfall index shows last year the snowfall was the most in 14 years and well above average, this year the least in over 25 years and well below average. LARGER VIEW
The cold air has been missing most of the Fall but the first more significant shot of colder temperatures is moving in this weekend for the Eastern half of the country. The seasons first snowfall in the Great Lakes and Northeast is also possible this weekend - not much but certainly a short lived change from the record warm Fall to date. LARGER MAP VIEW
This time last year the geese outside wt360 headquarters in Eastern Pennsylvania had already moved south to the Chesapeake Bay...they look right at home here at the moment. LARGER PICTURE VIEW
