Odd Pattern Turns Weather Upside-Down

A weather pattern partly linked with the ‘El Nino’ phenomenon has turned winter upside-down across the U.S., bringing spring-like warmth to the Northeast, a risk of tornadoes in the South and so much snow across the West that even skiing slopes have been overwhelmed.

From CBS News:

In a reversal of a typical late December, forecasters expect New York to be in the mid-60s this weekend — several degrees higher than Los Angeles.

The mild conditions have helped golf courses in New England do brisk business, but the pattern comes at a steep cost for ski resorts that have closed and for backcountry skiers who confront avalanche risks. And many Americans complain that it just doesn’t feel like the holidays without a chill in the air.
