Welcome to climatological winter!

Today marks the first day of climatological (or meteorological) winter. This year, parts of the Southeast even saw snow yesterday, which does not often happen so early in our winter season. Hope you are enjoying the colder weather! If you would like to know more about why climatological seasons are not the same as astronomical seasons, this NOAA article provides a good description.
