Earlier this year we heard doomsday reports of dreadful temperatures and deep snow. How could forecasts be so far off? One reason could be a phenomenon know as "Arctic Oscillation," which can't be predicted more than two weeks out. One scientist says high-pressure far up north has trapped the cold there and that we can expect the mild temperatures to continue ... for at least two more weeks.
Everyone's asking: "Where's the snow?"
Minnesota's pretty big. Sometimes the weather at one end of the state is a far cry from what's going on at the other end. But this December -- regardless of whether you're on the Range, in the Valley, in the Cities -- the same question is floating out over the brown grass and leaves.
