Snow in China! What does that mean for us?

The above image shows the temperature "anomalies" across the world today. In other words, WHO is seeing unusually warm or cold weather. The yellow/orange colors show the areas warmer than average and the blues/purples show the colder than average areas.

You can clearly see the large area of blues over Eastern Asia right now! It stands out like a sore thumb! Not only has it been cold there, but it has been snowy! Read this article for more info on the wild weather in China.

So, how does that affect Region 8? Well, that's what I'm looking into... Rest assure we will not see snow from a storm in China! That would be a goofy forecast, BUT does it point to a more active and progressive pattern in the coming weeks???? I'll continue to investigate... LOL

I have seen it Snow here in Arkansas in April before. I'm wanting to say it was in the early 90's. It was on a Good Friday. Don't remember how much we got, but it was a big one.

P.S. You can never tell what Mother Nature is going to bring us these days. It's getting to where you can barely tell one Season from the other. Reminds me of the studies from Revelations.

I think we got snow in 91-92 in April. I can't verify that just yet. But on the subject of changing weather, it's certainly not a sign of the end of the world. It's just the Earth's changing patterns. From Ice Ages to Tropical periods, to everything in between.
