Record Warm Winter Brings Unwanted Side-Effects

Ad Feedback

If you were hoping for lots of snow this winter, you've probably been disappointed.

The United States is experiencing the warmest winter in over a decade, the fourth warmest on record.
   
This winter hasn't only been warm -- it's been dry. The country received the third smallest amount of snowfall in nearly half a century.
   
While warm weather lovers may be relishing the temperatures, experts warn they may bring some unwanted side effects.

"Many insects are fooled into thinking it's spring, and they hatch out," one exterminator explained.

There's also the matter of allergies.
 
"Warmer winters are going to bring out the pollen and they're going to make people sicker," Vanderbilt University's Dr. David Hagaman said.
 
Scientists say the high temperatures and dry conditions could also mean more forest fires this spring.
