Another Stormy Week In The East Kept A Damper On Spring Demand Despite Warmer Temperatures to Last Year. The West Began To Warm And Dry Out.

Weekend Review (16-17 February 2008): While seasonably warm temperatures and mostly dry conditions were prevalent from the Rockies to the West Coast, it was a different story in the East. A potent storm took shape early in the weekend over Texas spreading some pockets of wintry weather in northern Texas and Oklahoma.

However, the system brought with it a very strong southerly flow of warm air which kept the precipitation as heavy rain and thunderstorms across the Mississippi, Tennessee, and Ohio Valleys. Ahead of the storm, the Southeast experienced spring-like weather with temperatures in the 70s helping to spur some early season product demand.

As the storm progressed to the northeast, the heavy rains made it into the Mid-Atlantic states late in the weekend and accompanied by very warm temperatures. Widespread severe weather occurred to include a significant tornado outbreak in Alabama and Georgia on Sunday. Measurable snow fell behind the system in the colder air from western Missouri into Wisconsin.

Last Week (week-ending 02/16/2008): A developing storm early week in the Southern Plains moved rapidly to the northeast and provided a wide mix of weather across the eastern third of North America. While the precipitation began as a mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain from the mid-Atlantic and points north, very warm air made its way south to north allowing the changeover to mostly rain in many East Coast locations.
