A director of meteorological studies here in the state explains it all. "There is no immediate change on the horizon." He goes on to relate this is due to a persistent high pressure over Greenland, a phenomenon known as 'North Atlantic Oscillation.' This high pressure blocks the cold air from lifting out of the Northeast.
Wonderful. They name the major winter storms, this does not include the squalls that leave an inch or two of the white stuff before moving on. Our last was Denis. With one 'N.' Just to be clear about this.
