"Is it over?"

Is it over? That is the comment I got on my guestbook earlier this week. The forecast of temperatures in the 40's and 50's for most of next week does give reasons to wonder. However, before you all get too excited for Spring, Winter is not quite done yet. Yes, it will be warm this coming week and the snow pack will decrease greatly, especially come Monday and Tuesday. However, a frontal system will bring winter back towards the end of the week. The clash of warm and cold air could make for some interesting weather, so it will be worth watching.

But, even beyond next weekend, it does look like winter will start to retreat. Just looking at the past few mid-late Marches, things usually quickly improve after the first week of March. Last year, by the end of March, we were having thunderstorms and temperatures as high as 78! On the flip side, the Blizzard of '93, which dumped 3-4 feet on the area in 1993, took place in mid-March!

Don't forget to set your clocks ahead tonight....Day Light Savings time begins again!
