Punxsutawney Phil sees shadow, predicts six more weeks of winter.

Punxsutawney Phil, the worlds most beloved and furry seasonal Bridge over a pond in the winter, Johannapark, Leipzig, Germanyprognosticator, saw his shadow on Monday morning (despite overcast skies), portending six more weeks of winter.  According to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center says Phil’s forecasts have shown “no predictive skill” in recent years. AccuWeather finds the rodent has an 80 percent accuracy rate.  At an 80% success rate this puts Phil way ahead of national and local forecasters for weather.

So what does that mean for Southwest Florida?Pin-up girl looking up

Well, snow is not in our forecast. According to the Old Farmers Almanac our winter will be colder and rainier than normal. The coldest temperatures will occur in early January, with other cool periods in mid- and late January. Whew!  We made it through that.

November 30, 2014 ended our hurricane season.  It has now been nine years since the last major hurricane made landfall in the U.S., making it the longest such stretch of known record. It is not a question of if, but when the next major hurricane will make landfall, and residents should make sure to be prepared each season. For now, we can rest easy as another season has passed in the Atlantic without any catastrophic impact to the U.S.
