How many more weeks of winter do we have left?

The winter season officially ends on March 20 and Spring starts on March 21. Hooray!

According to an AccuWeather.com forecast dated February 4, half of the U.S. will still experience six more weeks of winter (technically 5 weeks more). They predicted that the nation will be split in half, cold and snow will linger in the Northern states, while spring will get an earlier start in the southern half.

Wintry weather is to hold longest in cities from Detroit to Boston and New York City until mid- to late spring.

On the other hand, California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona, where severe drought conditions persist, will warm early. Areas farther east, into Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, will begin feeling spring's warmth in March.
