Fresh snow and a high temp in the low 20s today. Probably the last hurrah of “deep winter” around here. The pup is sure going to miss playing out on the frozen lake. With temps in the 40s this week the ice will be getting unsafe rather soon.

There's something wrong with the NAM's boundary layer scheme that gives modeled snow depth super powers. This creates a feedback cycle in which the snow cover is melted far slower than in reality due to the phantom snow cover influence keeping temps cooler and the cooler temps not allowing the snow to fully melt. Very easy to see this in action on the 00z NAM via Pivotal Weather. Just compare the model snow depth to the modeled 2m temps.

Continuing this thought, todays 12z NAM has high temps(21z) here for the next 4 days of 33, 33, 33 and 32.  Can't wait to see how much they are going to bust by

I'm curious to see how high the temperature here gets today.  The wind has switched to the south, but several models still keep us in the mid 30s.  The Euro says 42º.  DVN says 44º.

46 and full sun today. Worked in a t-shirt during peak heating outdoors.

Starting to see a big difference in mostly bare south facing sun drenched lawns vs. deep snow cover on north facing shaded lawns.

Inversion broke between 8 and 9 am today and the temp went up 9 degrees in an hour.  Up past 38 already

The Cedar Rapids airport, still out in the reflective snow field in between CR and Iowa City, is only in the mid 40s, but here in the city we've hit the low 50s for the first time this season.

broke 50 for the first time this year and the first time since December 23.  The snowpack is really taking a beating now.  I imagine most of it will be gone by this time next week

59 at ORD and 60 at MDW today.

Early-mid next week will easily top those numbers, but currently warmest since mid-November.

Never totally eradicated the strip of D1 in IL/IN over the course of winter.  Look at that coverage out west though.

Just checked out the snow cover and it looks like by late next week there will be no snow on the ground in most of the Midwest and Great Lakes. Even most of southern Ontario and parts of Northern Ontario will have little to no snow on the ground (aside from a few areas in Muskoka and around the shores of Lake Superior)

NWS point and click gives me 50's and 60's throughout the whole forecast. The previous few days have been great as well. B)

What a nice change for early March compared to recent years!

Officially, the snow here is gone.  There is obviously still some scattered snow, plus the piles, but green is quickly expanding.  My measuring spot had 18", now 0.  Visible satellite still shows white in rural areas all around Cedar Rapids.  The next two days should get rid of all of it.
