A mild, but wet May comes to a close; possibly more of the same for June

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. Right after that was an incredible spell of 60s and 70s that almost made us think we were in the […]

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 […]

Warm and dry for a while with changes ahead for the weekend

Coming out of what turned out to be a rather dreary and damp stretch of chilly weather, we were all hoping for not only a warm up, but also a decent respite from rain and clouds and certainly the weather over the weekend we enjoyed was just what anyone could have hoped for in early April. […]

Mild weather persists for us

Thanks to a relatively mild start to the day today that has featured morning high temperatures in the 30s across the area, we’ve managed to reach our fifth consecutive 30 degree day, something we haven’t done in about a month. Even though colder air is rushing into the area on the heels of the departing storm system that […]

Fall officially begins on a mild note; plenty of warmth ahead

We’ve already experienced our share of fall weather over the past month or so with a couple of spells of 50 and 60 degree highs and even a couple of rounds of frost in the area, but ironically as we reach the autumnal equinox, the official start to fall, our weather seems to be actually […]
