Wow, what a stretch of nice weather we have been having! As I sit here on my patio with an iced tea and a computer on my lap, I cannot seem to remember such a stretch of nice weather in March. Temperatures have been in the 70s and 60s consistently for the past 2-3 weeks and will continue for another 1-2 as a May-like airmass dominates most of the country. The pattern has really slowed down and systems are riding the jet way north. Our next chance of any precipitation will be next Saturday. Until then, enjoy the weather!
Long Range Insight:
So, what else is there to say? Monday will be beautiful, so will Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and even next Saturday morning. Amazing. Of course, things can’t stay like this forever. Like any weather geek, I have been looking for signs when this pattern will change. It seems, according to the long-range models, that early April will have a fairly significant cooldown. I could definitely see high temperatures in the 40s and lows in the 20s for a few days in April as the arctic air tries to make one last push South.
