A bit of early modern English to capture your attention this morning and yes spring is approaching even though the weather says differently. Today is the last day of meteorological winter and regardless of the snow and cold we are soon to enter the realm of transitions to warmer days. Keep in mind our transition month of November was our second snowiest month next to February and March has the appearances of starting out likewise.
My wife and I were married the first week of March during lake effect snow squalls 23 years ago. Hard to believe that many years have passed – now her children and mine have lives and children of their own. Actually we consider all the kids from our blended family to be ours and love them equally… Raising five kids in these days are interesting to say the least, but hey, we must have done something right as all are doing quite well for themselves – we have 10 grandchildren and one more is on the way within the next few days. I couldn’t be prouder.
We have a couple quiet days in store, not springlike by any stretch of the imagination – we may see temps in the low 30s on Friday and Saturday before the bottom drops out again and the lake effect machine gets cranked up. We haven’t seen a lot of lake effect this year, most of our snow events have been synoptic and the areas along the lakeshore has seen less snow than inland locations.
Looking at the long range models the hints of more springlike conditions begin around mid month with day time highs in the 50s which we all hope remain true….
