A Surge of Warmth for the Weekend

We’ve waited a long time to talk about the prospect of 50, or dare I say, 60 degree warmth, but this weekend’s forecast is looking like a pretty warm one, at least for a day. Given the rough winter we’ve had, the unusually pronounced Arctic air pattern  in our upper level winds, and our really […]

Looking Back at May 2013

So far June has been a little kinder to us than May as each day has featured at least a decent window of sunshine and even the rain we’ve seen has been fairly light.  May, on the other hand, certainly did feature a ridiculous amount of rainfall and even quite a dumping of snow!  Looking back at […]

Even though the last couple of days in the month of May we quite a bit cooler than normal and even a little unsettled, the overall picture for May 2012 was a rather warm one for us.  As we’ve seen every month so far this year, our average high temperature for the month was warmer […]

Lyrid Meteor Shower This Weekend

While we are expecting abundant cloud cover this weekend with the arrival of another storm system in the area, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that there may be a few gaps in those clouds to allow us to see a spectacular Lyrid meteor shower.  The peak activity for those meteors will be tomorrow night when […]

Hard Freeze Likely

The more April-like weather of the past week has reminded us of what things should feel like in our area during a more typical year.  Normally, we’d have 40s and 50s for highs with occasional 60s and plenty of wind.  Yes, April is the windiest month on average in our area and today’s conditions are […]
