Sluggish Start To Spring

A meteorologist calling this winter one for the record books in terms of cold temperatures, and it won't be heating up anytime soon. 

Dayna Vettese of the Weather Network tells CHSJ News we won't see balmy spring weather until about mid-April. She says we tend to see about 2 or 3 degrees for daytime highs during this month, but over the next few weeks temperatures will hover closer to the zero mark or even drop below that.

Vettese says there is a big trough in the jet stream and all of the cold air is funneling south, which is almost the opposite of what happened a few years ago when we experienced an usually warm March.
