If you have been following the Embry Riddle Prescott blogs for some time now, you may happen to notice that this year has been quite different from the last. I talked a lot about how cold and snowy it can get here however, this year that has not been the case. Many students who have been here for several years are shocked about the warm weather we have been having since winter break. Some days it has even got up to 70 degrees and students are wearing shorts to class!
Well, I figured I would go speak to an “authority” on the weather to see what the cause of this mysterious weather is. The meteorology majors told me that our weather is caused by an unusual pattern which is connected to the warm weather that is being experienced in Northern California as well. It is also connected to the freezing weather and snowy storms that are plaguing the Eastern United States. It is just a part of the Earth’s natural cycle of weather, according to a professor who says that “every few years a system such as this sweeps across the US and although it seems unusual it is really just a part of a larger pattern.”
So if you are worried about the weather, you have nothing to fear, it will eventually correct itself and we can all get on to the classic weather of our respective regions.
