WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- WUSA 9 Meteorologist Howard Bernstein says it's going to be a disappointing winter if you're a snow lover. We have a nice start to the week and a full moon, or "a snow moon."
The Farmers' Almanac defines the snow moon this way: "Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February's full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this Moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult."
