Headline: Unusual Weather pattern Remains Stalled.
Extremely cold air accompanied by heavy snowfall has blanketed much of western Europe. Unusually cold air has also invaded the southeastern U.S. including Florida. With the world attention on these two locations experiencing extreme cold winter conditions, there are also areas that have been experiencing unusual warmth for this time of the year. For example, temperatures in Greenland have been warmer than the SE U.S. and western Europe. The central and eastern Arctic in Canada have also been unusually warm.
