Temperatures for February look to be near or slightly below normal for the Borderland. The Climate Prediction Center is calling for below normal temperatures for much of the Southern and Southeastern United States. This is most likely caused by the strengthening El Nino event occurring at this time. El Nino tends to send more storms in our direction, resulting in more clouds, rain, snow; and cooler temperatures. Weather looks to be rather warm across the upper Rockies and the Pacific Northwest. Near normal weather dominates the Midwest through the Great Lakes and New England.
