"This winter looks to be warmer and wetter than average."
Yep. I wrote those words, published on the front page of the Central Kentucky News-Journal in late November.
But before you start lobbing tomatoes - or snowballs - at me, I didn't make the prediction. It was a state hydrologist who said, based on a Pacific Ocean pattern, this winter could be warmer and wetter than average. I repeat, "could be."
Have you ever tried to predict the weather in Kentucky?
Wetter? Sure. Warmer? That remains to be seen.
