North America Expects Warm Spring

Heat will soon make its entrance to most of North America, as specialists say we will experience  above average temperatures over the new season.

It is expected to be drier than other springs, specifically in the West and Southwest, including Texas. At the same time, flooding is likely to happen in a variety of regions, like North Dakota, and the Mississippi area, and could be worsen by the early melting of the winter snow.

“This spring’s outlook is a mixed bag of drought, flooding and warm weather”, a specialist said.

Drought and increasing temperatures could create fire in the Southwest, like Oklahoma, where wildfires have already been seen, and the state of Florida.

So, although it is still cold in the north, spring will soon rise the temperatures.
