Let me get this out of the way first:
WINTER IS NOT OVER!
Now, that said, it looks like the potential double-whammy we were anticipating for this week is a non-starter. We will see some rain starting later tonight, which might wrap up with a bit of rain and snow mix overnight. That's pretty good news, and it gets better!
The forecast models are currently suggesting that the "big" storm will remain well-south of us and we will skate by with no, to very little accumulation. Of course these things can change, so we'll keep you posted!
Many forecasters think this week marks the turning point for the weather cycle and we should get into a more "March-like" cycle with cold days followed by warm periods as well. That doesn't mean that we won't get snow, indeed, we have had major winter storms and blizzards well-into March in the past, but this certainly feels like we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
And that is good enough for me.
Have a happy Monday!
