MU Researcher Finds Link Between Two Warmest Winter Months
COLUMBIA - An MU researcher says he has found a connection between the two warmest winter months in Midwest history.
The month of March was 15 degrees above average this year and 18 degrees above average in 1889.
Tony Lupo found both years were in La Nina years.
2012 and 1889 also both had arctic oscillations, which trapped cold air in the arctic.
Lupo says this finding could help with future weather predictions.
