Met Spring begins this week!

I’m so ready for spring (and a warm/sunny spring too)!  Hopefully next week is our last cold shot of the season.

Just got back from South Carolina. Early trees blooming everywhere down there. Clover starting to pop up. Bushes budding. Spring is encroaching.

Saw miniature daffodils in full bloom in a couple Smithsonian gardens while walking to work this morning.

Bring it.

Forsythia blooming next to the Pentagon on 27 when I drove by enroute to Rosslyn this morning.

I simply can’t wait for the dreary days to be over. I think I’ve been affected by it much more this winter than ever before.

Bring me warm sunshine and afternoon storms...

I don’t think I’ve been more ready for a week straight of no weather.  I can’t remember the last one where we didn’t have precip.  Let’s hope it breaks soon.

After this cold week coming up, I hope we get a massive SE ridge for the rest of March.  I am ready for spring.  I started dozens of tropical milkweed seeds under lights a few days ago.  The monarchs will be happy with me this summer.

Yep, bring on the ridge.  I can’t wait for sustained 60s and 70s.

Today is a great example of why I tend to loathe march snow and March snow chases for inside the beltways. Tends to be just gross wet more times than not. Wish we could find warmer drier weather.

Cold day. Warm sun.

 

I can feel it coming..

Yep.  Outside in the sun in a tshirt, no problem.  It's a furnace in the sun, regardless of the temp, if there is no wind.

i've thought about this sun angle thing a bit.  my conclusion is that it affects ratios more than it does stickage.  a 32 and below surface is 32 and below, but i've definitely noticed that some of these march snowers have generally worse ratios (and possibly higher rate of melting after stickage as well), during the day.  i could be wrong and having a selective memory here, but it would make sense that the sun angle would impact a snowflake's rate of melting on the way down.  yes, we are capable of march powder, but i think fringe temps are more of a problem in march than january.  rates would overcome that for obvious reasons.  how much of an impact is up for the debate, but i think it's kind of irrational to say it makes no difference.
