Question
I live in Eldorado arkansas my question is this what is up with all the cold fronts we keep getting this month is may not February it's not normal for it to be this cold or is it

Answer
Hi Chris

The reason for the abnormal weather the last few months is due to an abnormal jet stream pattern that is allowing cold polar high pressure systems to bring colder than normal air into your region. Some scientists believe that the shift from normal is due to abnormal ocean temperatures in the Atlantic.
