Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

Honestly, I’d like to see a bit more rain the forecast, since things dry out so quickly this time of year. Vegetation begins coming to life and that vegetation is thirsty. I do not see any significant rainfall until the middle of the month. The good news is that the dry weather also means severe weather stays away. That will likely change the second half of the month.

Is it safe to say the snow is over. Yes.

Is it safe to say we’ll have no more cold weather? No. (ha) Remember, we have Dogwood winter, Blackberry winter, etc etc A total of at least five “winters” before summer comes along.
