Soaking it in
Just what the weather doctor ordered, another sunny day.
I don’t know about you, but my sprits soared a little with Tuesday’s sunshine.
Today will bring bright sun and light winds. It may almost feel pleasant out there by afternoon. We’re still running cool for this time of year, but at least the sun out. It’s like a visit from a long lost welcome friend.
Our average high at MSP hits 40F today. Another sign that spring will eventually come.
In Updraft today I’m tracking a couple of weak Clippers late tonight and Friday. I’m also keeping an eye on what looks like a potentially bigger snow event Sunday night & Monday. Another storm late next week could be warm enough for more rain.
A good sign for easing drought? Short term pain for long term gain?
I know we could all use a dose of spring like weather. After a promising looking forecast a week ago all major models did a flip flop in the past week and seem to favor continued cooler and wetter than average weather through most of March.
Hang in there; I’ve seen spring milder spring weather patterns develop quickly as upper air pattern can change quickly this time of year. I’ll be watching for that in the coming days and weeks.
In the mean time, I think I’ll just soak up the sun today and let tomorrow take care of itself.
It’s nice to see a “clean” sunrise at the Weather Lab this morning.
It’s hard to see it in our current weather pattern, but spring really is getting closer everyday. A week from today at noon the sun will be 45 degrees above the southern horizon, on the Spring (Vernal) Equinox.
