A the temperature spread so far this Winter has been 81 degrees a from a High of 63 in december to a Low of 18 below Zero monday morning of this week. A snowfall to Date this Winter has been 31.22 inches at the official weather collecting station at the eau Claire Airport. By month the snowfall has been 5.6 inches in november 5.1 inches in december 13.3 inches in january and 7.2 inches so far this month All of which fell last wednesday and thursday. It appeared Early last fall As though the warnings of Many Well known weather watchers that this would be a wild and woolly Winter were to come True. After All the areas first snowfall was recorded on oct. 20, Well ahead of schedule. But then the weather warmed and it has stayed that Way much of the Winter although eau Claire has had More than 22 Days during which one tenth of an Inch of Snow or More has fallen. According to meteorologist Bill Togstad at the National weather service in the twin cities weather experts believe the reason for this mild Winter so far is that Pacific Ocean currents Are warm far to the North this year. When this happens Winters tend to be mild but when Pacific Ocean currents Are cold then storm tracks have a tendency to fall farther South. And How about the All important Jet Stream according to or. Togstad a the Jet Isnit As important As Many people make it out to be. Its location is More of a symptom of the weather not the cause of however the Jet Stream has remained North of Middle America for much of the Winter and has not dipped South pulling icy temperatures with it. Or. Togstad said the first few storms of fall and Early Winter traditionally a tend to set the tone for the rest of once Snow cover is on the ground he says a permanent weather front seems to follow the area that is Between the lower limits of the permanent Snow cover and the area to the South where there is Little or no Snow cover. The Snow cover in West Central Wisconsin did no to get established until quite late last fall so according to this theory major storm tracks should have been kept to the North. This year they have remained farther North than Normal. Now this does no to mean there wont be foul Winter weather ahead for West Central Wisconsin residents. Or. Togstad noted that in late february and Early March storm tracks Start coming out of the Texas Panhandle rather than the Pacific Northwest and these late Spring storms a can cause some real dumpers on our moreover the meteorologist pointed out that Early morning temperatures monday just West of Hudson Bay in North Central Canada were reported at 41 below Zero. A so there is a lot of frigid weather still up there a or. Togstad revealed. However the Good news is that the latest National weather service 30-Day extended forecast taking it through the month Calls for More of the same above Normal temperatures and below Normal precipitation for West Central Wisconsin.
