Not really correct about 2010/2011:
Message from Mike coastal CT
In your location (USA upper East Coast), its not really correct that both winter 2010 and 2011 were below normal or bad: In fact, in those two winters (6 winter months)
4 were above normal and only 2 were below. None of them had lows below your normal (zone 7) zone .
NWS Philadelphia shows:
December 2010 . 4.7 F below normal/No below zone lows
January 2011 . 3.7 F below normal/No below normal zone lows
February 2011 .2.4 F above normal/No below normal zone lows
December 2011 .5.8 F above normal/No below zone lows.
January 2012 4.7 F above normal/No below zone lows.
February 2012 .5.2 F above normal/No below zone lows.
Maybe Joe Bastardi posted this on his site...but it's not really correct. He has the habit of trying to overlook the warm months - LOL.
