Gonna need a lot to happen. Pur 2" of snow held tough till about noon today in the woods. Bare ground everywhere now. Water on top of all the lakes. Looks like March. it can change in a week, but sure seems the extended offers little hope before the 29th
I have always been under the impression Arctic air for the CONUS doesn't come from Alaska as a very strong general rule. Usually Nunavut or Greenland with cross polar flow is the source. Anything is possible but waiting For a PV to drop from Alaska to the CONUS is very rare.
