The temperature outlook for the next couple weeks is very promising for above normal temperatures. After a very cold last few weeks for many in Nebraska and eastward, this warm weather will be welcome and needed. The one-month outlook still has central and northeast U.S. in the area of increased chances for below normal temperatures. The very cold temperatures over the last few days and the rest of this week look to "even out" the warmth expected next week as far as an average temperature through the firs half of March. This would mean they are predicting enhanced odds for below normal temperatures the final two weeks of March, although the probabilities are quite low for the central and northern plains. Models are suggesting a return to the pattern we saw in late February/early March in week 3. This pattern had the cool air centered over the Great Lakes, which impacted most areas east of the Rockies.
