    In last week's Health Front Meteorologist Henry Margusity explained the weather phenomenon known as Seasonal Acclimation , but there are some exceptions to the rule. While it may be true that Seasonal Acclimation helps make winter tolerable for many, there are some extreme conditions that send even the boldest running.

    We recently saw a good example of these hazardous conditions with the record-setting storm that covered the New England area with more than two feet of snow in many places. This week Margusity explains why some of the most potent winter storms strike toward the end of winter, when Arctic air has been in place for some time.
