Yep, a mild start will help for sure. 

73.2 here currently. Yet another fine spring day. 

The GFS punting Mid Spring (a week ago ) was off after its grand victory of getting the last freeze right.

Hear ye hear ye!  Mount Joy Snowman decrees to the board that he has labored over every model, studied every almanac, and spoken to every Seer, and after rigorous deliberation of the foregoing, he hereby declares snow season over for the LSV.  It brings him no joy to make this proclamation but he has the authority to do so because, well, he is the self-anointed Snowman of Mount Joy, a title with limitless power.  In honor of this declaration, let's hear your 2020/2021 seasonal snowfall totals.  I shall start by announcing a grand total of 33.4 glorious inches.  Fire away friends!

The 12z GFS says that some of us might not be done with snow...yet!

If this happens, it might be time for a road trip to @MAG5035 or @Wmsptwx !

Never mind... it might be time to make my first trip ever to Clearfield according to that snow map!

@2001kx .... We might be up there in 2 weeks!

Any rain chance is quickly diminishing for the next 10 days.

Doesn't the weekend still look fairly wet?    I did not scan through everything but it looks to me that after our heat today (80?)  we have a couple moist and cool days then a bit more heat followed by a long period of cool and moist. 

 

PS-Thank Goodness the Boston Baseball Red Sox have arrived and are back.

Not the best timing, but I hope we get some rain over the weekend. This is not the time of year to start worrying about dry weather. I've had less than .5" of rain over the past 10-14 days. 

Now you are talking. Does not look dry over here yet but it can change in a matter of a day or two like today with a lot of sun (over this way at least) and temps in the 80's.

Snowman is fully aware of the propensity of the Goofus to light up the snow maps at the post-300 hour and has accounted for that accordingly, that is to say, not at all haha.  But he is always ready to eat crow if the circumstances demand it!

Clouds here have just started to thin in the past 10 minutes. Still mostly cloudy but sun is imminent. Looks like I have an ever so slight NE breeze that might keep things a little cooler than...well, the 80s. We'll see...

I'm not exactly sure what your diet is, but I highly doubt you'll be adding crow to it. :)

I'd like some rain as well. I'll work outside between or even during the showers. This time of year is tough for me with my OCD.  i feel like i have to complete a years worth of outside projects in a single weekend. I know i can't but unfinished work drives me insane.

We are very much alike in that regard - I hate having "open tabs" mentally. Having lots of things going on simultaneously throws me off big time.

I have a much better chance over here than you do.  The SR models definitely show a NE component pressing in and keeping Easterners less hot.

Rain and the temp is down to 58 here...

Edit: Looks like it might finally clear off as the shower has passed. .03" in the bucket. 

You guys are going to fight off the heatmiser today it appears.  Not sure if I get 80 but upper 70's are a given IMO.

Nice little shower just rolled through here, dropped one or two hundredths of an inch.  Temp holding at 64 but skies starting to brighten now, can see clearing looking north towards Mt. Gretna.

Temp jumped 8 degrees here in the past 35 minutes. 66.2 on the station and rising rapidly.
