Finishing up lunch break right now ... so I am squeezing in a new forecast. Sorry for not updating, but being away last weekend, and playing catch up since Tue has put some things on the back burner. But no more!
There is a lot of talk about a sudden switch to spring and that winter is done or on fumes or is dying. And they point to the warm up this weekend and the fact that another warm-up will occur the middle of next week as proof of spring arriving.
But next Wed is March 13 ... the middle of March. Normally winter is close to or has ended and spring like weather is more common. There is nothing magical or incredible about forecasting winter is about done. It should be about done! It is amazing what some will "hype" just to get attention.
To make a long story short, instead of instant warmth, or long lasting cold, it looks like we will have a more traditional transition from winter to spring. This means the warm surges get stronger and longer, and the cold blasts get weaker and shorter as we go through the month and into April. It means we can get warm, and we can get some more snow, as this transition continues. No need to make a big deal out of it, because we look to have a rather normal rise out of winter.

The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
