This article provides a simple answer to questions about short-term weather versus long-term climate. The answer is provided by meteorologist Marshall Shepherd,  a professor at the University of Georgia and host of the Weather Channel Show, “Weather Geeks.” He says in northern states, warmer temperatures can actually lead to more heavy snowfalls. That’s because warmer air holds more water vapor, which is the fuel for snow. Plus, he says, there’s the big difference between weather and climate.
