Welcome Back To Spring...But Will It Last?

That is the question on everyone's mind and it looks like it will be too, until the models really agree on a long warm setting. I will get more to that in a moment, but for the rest of this week...it will be very warm (could reach 70ยบF on Friday and Satuday!) and that will be all that you will notice. I really don't see a rain chance at all until at least late Saturday into Sunday when we get a small system to come through, but those chances are 20-30% at best.

The models have been hooking on to a cold spell for a good chunk of March from the mid portion of the month til almost the end of the month. But for March, I'm really not buying that long of a cold period. Maybe we will get 2-3 days of some colder weather, but no real long period like the models are saying.

What would trigger this type of weather pattern would be a strong storm system to impact us and that would help usher in the colder, artic air. The models have backed a bit off the severe numbers, but the numbers given yesterday where a good bit alarming and I'm not at all surprised to see it put on the brakes a bit.
