We're 16 days in to meteorological Spring, but official Spring starts in just a few days and I don't think anyone notices. Three of the past seven days have had highs in the 60's, but it's those dips back in to the 30's... like today... that makes everyone feel like we're still stuck in Winter.
Storms are starting to miss us now, where all winter they seemed to have at least clipped us. Wednesday's storm that early on looked like it could have been a moderate snow maker, turned in to a bust. We ended up with zero snow and our second rainiest day of the calendar year with 0.54".
If we're looking for Spring, we may want to think about April. This week will be right around average with some 50's, but look ahead to the temperature anomalies for the start of next week:
The easiest thing you can tell from this map is the eastern half of the US will be back under a large trough.
Get ready for more Winter. It's not going anywhere yet.
