In typical late spring fashion, we managed to enjoy our ups and downs for temperatures in the month of May this year and it all ended up averaging out to be within a couple of degrees of what we consider to be “normal” of the climate average. Looking ahead at the month of June, it […]

Chilly to start the week, but warmer weather will return soon

Each week this month has had its own theme…or season. We started with seasonable, spring-like weather through Easter Sunday, but then a cold snap the following work week brought frigid temperatures and eventually shovel-able snow.

The mild spell continues, but cooler days aren’t far off

It’s been almost a full week since our last cool snap ended with a coating of wet snow just before a surge of milder air over the weekend brought us back into spring mode. Now, as we approach the tail end of the work week, a week that has seen us enjoy nothing but 60 to 70 […]
