  1. Once again, this is the time of year that I'm so jealous of Nebraska weather. It's always so much warmer than in eastern Iowa.

  2. Currently 68.2 in my backyard. Might crack 70 today! 2 weeks ago, I dropped down to -24 and some spots in the area were -30. Only a 100 degree difference in 2 weeks!

  3. Holy blizzard by the 12z GFS. Winter might make a come back in 7-10 days. Long ways out but something is brewing in the long range; it fits the LRC also as Gary Lezak talked about it in his blog this morning.

  10. Another silver lining is that it is looking like a very good pattern for much of California, rain and snowpack wise.

  11. Sitting here realizing HIO hasn't hit 60 yet this year. In fact you have to go all the way back to November 5th for the last time That's actually the last time we did too. If we slide past tomorrow it will be a solid four months.

  13. Maps Page Meteogram Upgrades Meteogram Upgrades Coming Tomorrow at 12z! We are pleased to announce an upgrade and refresh to our meteograms! These changes will take effect with the 1200 UTC model suite tomorrow, Thursday March 4, 2021. Visit our Maps Page Details of Upgrades Efficiency improvements will deliver products sooner, enabling you to use them in your analysis and decision-making sooner as well. Where possible, we maximized temporal resolution, and vertical resolution as well for time-height cross-sections. We added legends and improve plot layouts and colors to make clearer, cleaner, and streamlined charts. Our meteogram model selection menu will group models by type and forecast duration, as in our main maps menu. Additionally, we've made the ordering consistent between the two.

  14. Eastern IA seems to be the ideal place if you want to hold on to snow cover forever lol.

  20. Yeah. April 2011 and 2008 are the two coldest on record up here I think. Just checked out March 2008. It was really cold, a monthly mean of 37.7, the 3rd coldest on record behind 1951, 2012. Been a pretty good run in March up here. in the 2008-2020 period only March 2013-15 have been above average.

  21. Blech, the Sun is really getting strong. Car interior actually got borderline hot after 20mins in the lot today. Had to roll the windows down upon returning. F**king depressing.

  23. My weather station reported a wind chill factor of 38F at one point during the rain (actual outdoor temp was 44F). Eastern escarpment of Elsinore Peak (3,575 feet above sea level) - while hard to make out from here due to passing clouds - snow appears to be visible on the mountain down to roughly 3,000 feet.

  25. Hasn't been a truly cold March since 2014 and before that Maybe 2009? Can almost bank on a "non-wintry" month any more. 1982 was true winter

  26. Winter ended. Even if places got snow later this month, it would be spring snow.

  30. It always seems to look dormant in that view. I bet Salem is greening up though. Here is an open space across the road from us... a month ago this was all brown with last year's growth. New growth is emerging now and its not dormant any longer. Obviously perfectly normal for early March... if not a bit late.

  31. I'm kind of torn now. I am nearly in spring mode because I have flowers coming up already. One last blizzard would be kinda nice, but after the forecasted high of 60 on Tuesday.... Ugh

  32. @TT-SEA I looked up February 25-26, 2012 in my old records. Looks like we had 2.8" of snow on the 25th and 1.3" on the 26th. Pretty chilly too. 35/30 and 38/27. Totally forgot about that event in the 9 years since it happened...

  35. Today March 3rd is the earliest day of the year that it ever officially reached 70 or better. As stated above it reached 72 on this date in 1983 and it also reached 71 in 1974. The next March day with a record high of 70 or better is not until March 7th. Also of note it that as of today Grand Rapids has not had a thunder event yet. To bring you up to date any day that has a recorded lightning strike is considered a thunderstorm event. At this time it is clear here at my house and I have a temperature of 32 the overnight low was 31. I reported a trace of snow on the ground but there is between bare ground to around 5" in the yard and of course there are still a lot of big snow piles all around. But this is very typical for early March. On this date the snow depth at Grand Rapids has ranged from none in many years all the way up to 19" in 2014. And the high has ranged from that 72 in 1973 to 12 in 1943 and in 2014 the high was just 15. and the low has ranged from -9 in 1942 (it was -8 in 2014) to the warmest low of 40 in 1964 and 1974

  36. Is 1980 a good analog? Thats the year my Atari 2600 (Sears Version) was built and I finally got it running again today, #blastfromthepast!! 20210301_151628.mp4

  37. The current temperature here at my house is 12.4 I wonder it this will be the last very cold morning this season. Here are some official readings for Grand Rapids for this past meteorological winter. The average H/L at GRR was 33.3/21.0. The 30 year average is 33.1/20.5 The 3 month mean was 27.1 and the current 30 year mean is 26.8. So over all the winter of 2020/21 was a little warmer than the current 30 year average. Now in the snow fall department that was a different story as just 45.4” fell and that is -12.1” and for the season just 45.8” have fallen so far and that is -19.0” For the season there were 0 thunderstorm days. 1 day with heavy rain, 17 with light rain, 51 days with light snow 3 days with heavy snow. The there was 27% pf possible sunshine with 7 clear days, 17 partly cloudy days and 66 cloudy days.

  38. I think the green in grass revealed immediately after snowmelt is left over chlorophyll in the grass preserved by below freezing temps and snow cover. The grass is dormant still until the soil warms up. If the snow melts but soil temps keep cold enough to keep the grass dormant, the residual chlorophyll eventually breaks down and the grass turns brown just like leaves change in the autumn.

  39. I've noticed that the grass looks pretty green here as well. That's pretty neat, I didn't snow cover provided an insulation like that. Even in the mildest winters in Memphis, I never saw green grass this time of year.

  40. I saw a post somewhere that our frost depth only got down to 5-6" I believe bc of that same reason. Wasn't cold and then it snowed, got really cold, and that insulated the ground. Should be a quick green up. We're mostly snowless here now

  42. That's a wrap! This was the epitome of a "back-loaded" winter for Chicago and the most memorable comeback of Winter I've ever experienced. The numbers below say speak for itself. I was surprised to see that the avg temp ended up 0.1F BN after such a warm Dec and Jan. Interestingly, precip was BN while in the snow dept it ended up much AN! The brutal cold wasn't that much of a player over here as subzero readings at ORD were shy of the avg (12) days a typical winter season sees. Now, I'll be honest, as a winter wx fan I'm already paying attn to next winter and some similar ideas are already coming to mind with high late blocking (esp Greenland) next cold season. Low solar and cyclical patterns will be in the cards so there is hope for a good to great one next year without having to see so much warmth as the oceans cool this summer/autumn.
