AFTER A MILD SUNDAY, COOLER WEATHER RETURNS FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE WORK WEEK… SOME RAIN MAY FOLLOW BY MID-WEEK AND THEN WE SHOULD WARM BACK UP

Saturday was a fantastic day for the middle of March. In response to the mild temperatures and the recent rainfall, the grass is starting to turn green again and some of the trees are budding. My Bradford Pear tree is in full bloom. Yes,¬† spring is only about a week away. A dry cold front will be moving through switching our winds around to the northwest later today (Sunday). Temperatures will once again reach the 60’s but there will be lots of clouds around. Monday will be much cooler with just a slight chance of a light shower or sprinkle. Rain chances will most likely increase as we head towards mid-week. Later in the week, we should warm back up.

Today, March 13th, is the 18th anniversary of the March Super Storm of 1993. That large and powerful storm brought heavy snow accumulations to many areas of the¬†Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, extremely strong winds to just about the entire eastern part of the nation, including wind induced coastal flooding along the Gulf Coast of Florida and heavy flooding rain to some areas. In my opinion, that was the “Storm of the Century”!

Thanks for reading and have a great day.
