Meteorologists from AccuWeather are already looking ahead to the next couple of months as they've put together their forecast for the weeks ahead.
AccuWeather says we could see more periods of above average temperatures in between a few Artic blasts. Climate experts say the warmer temps are a combination of the Polar Vortex staying closer to the high latitudes, and a persistent La Niña. This La Niña event has now stretched into its third straight year.
