NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- On this episode of "Weather or Not with Lee Goldberg," we explore the root causes of why this winter has been so warm and snow-free.
Jeff Smith speaks to Judah Cohen from Verisk AER who breaks down some reasons for our balmy winter.
Cohen says three top suspects are likely to blame: La Nina, the polar vortex's position and climate change.
There is some hope for snow lovers leading into the latter half of winter. Lee talks to AccuWeather's lead long-range forecaster Paul Pastelok about the possibility of snow before spring takes hold.
In this special, Lee also shares Eyewitness News archival footage of historic storms, as a reminder of everything we've been missing this year. And, of course, you never know!
