springtime on display... (pm.25.mar.17)>

Saturday's stats:

Low temp: 59.4F (15.2C)
High temp: 71.6F (22.0C)
Precipitation: none

I've only recorded a trace of rainfall, on three different occasions, during the last eight days.  And during those same eight days, temperatures have gone from about 11ºF/6ºC below normal, to 2-3ºF/1-2ºC above normal.  It's definitely been quite a transformation we've undergone since just barely over a week ago.  Today has been yet another day of the back-and-forth between sunshine and clouds that we have seen so often during this past week.

Other than a barely mentionable risk of a shower or thundershower one of these afternoons, we should continue to see a good amount of sunshine punctuated by periods of cloudiness as we make our way through the coming several days.  The main event is going to be the northward surge of some even warmer temperatures, which is still looking like it will take us very far above normal for the tail-end of March.  The 80ºF/27ºC mark could be reached sometime during the mid-week period.

As April arrives next Saturday, the weather pattern is going to become more unsettled and unstable -- and potentially much cooler and wetter.  There's a lot of time to keep an eye on things, but just keep in mind that this unseasonably warm weather may not continue into the new month.
