Thirty days has September, April June, and November, except March which has 8,000. Looking forward to warm rain vs. cold rain.

Last year it seemed like March was three months long, and then the last week of November seemed to continue for endless months as well. Subjectively for me it was unrelenting gloom, felt like vacationing in Scotland. Constant freeze thaw. Never wet enough to justify the full on overboots, but damp enough that with three pairs of workboots in rotation the first would dry in time for the third to come home soaked. Maybe just bad luck that this winter and an extensive below-grade excavation coincided, so there was no getting out of it.

Should have bought the GI moon boots.

My redbud is starting to get purple and my neighbor's forsythia is bright yellow....so spring is here even if the temp doesn't always seem like it.

The sky really is blue.  Nice to finally have some sun hit the skin

 

 

 

Should enjoy the solid stretch the next week or so because it seems the general look Easter weekend into the following week is the ridge shifts east and we may be in the volatile zone of storms.  Would truly be something if we had a wintry threat around my bday for the third straight year.

meh, climo.   took me many yrs to figure  it out also.  Toss out Lake Michigan and spring climo would be a walk in the park.  We get porked along the lake every yr.

I can't believe how many decent sized Midwest cities are reporting freezing rain during the middle of the day (thankful we are on the warm side of things and will not be seeing freezing rain).  Rochester and Minneapolis, MN; Des Moines, IA; Kansas City, etc. all reporting it right now.

The front ended up being faster than models originally predicted, so just about our entire day has been cold.  We have fallen to the mid 30s as light rain moves in.

Tuesday will likely be the warmest day of the year (70s to near 80), but it will be followed by more cold.

Hopefully we can tag our first 80 Tue.  Euro shows over 1500J/Kg of cape, so hopefully we can get some good convection later in the day as well.

Nah, models are being negatively affected right now due to lack of aircraft data. Wouldn't put much stock into them past D3 at this point.
