Old Man Winter's bone-chilling assault on the United States isn't over yet, says Joe Bastardi, chief forecaster for WeatherBELL Analytics.

"What we think is going to happen is we're going to continue running colder than normal through March and on into mid-April," Bastardi said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Obviously, March can't be as bad as February in terms of absolute temperatures.

"But to quote a dear friend of mine when I used to work at AccuWeather, Elliott Abrams, he would say, 'Spring may be right around the corner but it's a long haul to the end of the block.'"

As for the rest of the year, there's both positive and negative, according to Bastardi.

"The good news is we're looking at a similar summer to last year in the nation's breadbasket. The bad news is this pattern may continue for next winter, too," he said.
