The historically higher-than-normal temperatures this winter appear to have been just the start. AccuWeather is predicting higher-than-normal temperatures over the next three months throughout the United States.
Places such as Orlando (3.5 degrees Fahrenheit above the long-term normal temperature), Cincinnati and Washington, D.C., (both 2.8 F above) and Atlanta, Memphis and Detroit (each 2.5 F above) will experience higher temperatures in April, according to the long-range AccuWeather for Business forecast.
More than double the average ice loss per year.
