The forecast (at least on the east coast) is all 40’s and 50’s next week. We’re headed into spring after this.
Looks Like This Storm is Winter’s Last Gasp

Hope you did not jinx us OP. Significant snow storms are not unheard of in March and April.

I am north of NYC and it’s been snowing for just over an hour. We already have an inch of snow. If it keeps falling at this rate we’re looking at over a foot of snow (on top of the foot still on the ground).

Are you pro-winter, R11?

You’d better be right OP. I still see snow on the forecast for NYC next week but I’ll live in denial for now.

“Jinxed us.” You lily livered crybabies! Quit your bellyaching with these superstitious reveries. I’ve peered through the fog of the immediate future and there’s no snow on the horizon.

But your gay ass is shoveling me out when we do get a storm.
Don’t you remember that old commercial, “you don’t fuck with Mother Nature”? I think it was for butter.

Another day added to the Weather Channel two-week forecast (Thursday March 4) and it’s 45 degrees. I’m telling you, spring is coming.

You probably can't believe this, r17, but it's not butter.

Thanks, R21. I took that photo last year.

We can have big storms in March and April, but even now the sun's angle is much higher than in December. Snow struggles to accumulate on pavement as we move closer to spring.

Spring, my ass. I just slogged for an hour through Philadelphia slush and I have had it. I thought Philly is at the latitude of Naples and spring comes early....

I said starting next week, R24. From Tuesday onward, not a day below 40 degrees.

In Florida, spring was in January this year. All my spring bulbs have come and gone. I am preparing for hurricanes, now.

Good luck, R26. Hopefully you’ll get a weak hurricane season this year.
|by Anonymous||reply 27||Last Sunday at 4:11 AM|
R26 In central Florida, we were very fortunate last year. Nothing came by us in all those storms. I cannot imagine in these 'days of reckoning' we will be missed this year. And, I am sure California will burn again. That seems to be what we do these years.

It's going to hit 40 degrees here. I texted my downstairs neighbor to be careful if she goes out onto her patio because there are some killer icicles above her head that'll likely be crashing down today or tomorrow.

Snowing again in NY. Tomorrow might hit 50F though.
|by Anonymous||reply 36||Last Tuesday at 7:02 AM|
Agree with R8 and R14.
It will get cold again in March.
Like the past couple of years, there will be a period of mild weather, then temperatures will suddenly drop and we'll have snow at the end of March. Then it will be cold until the end of April.
|by Anonymous||reply 37||Last Tuesday at 7:04 AM|
R37 that is not what will happen.

In Michigan, we often have snow in April. We are now entering what we call the "Fool's Spring". Everybody knows there will be more snow and cold before we dare plant anything in our gardens.

Of course there will be cold snaps. We’re talking about spring, not summer. Nobody’s saying it will be smooth sailing from here on out. But we’re hopefully beyond the weeks of freezing temperatures and snow storms that turn to ice at night. If it snows a couple inches one day and then melts the next as temperatures rise into the 40’s again, I’m fine with that.
|by Anonymous||reply 41||Last Tuesday at 8:07 AM|
Look at today. It snowed yesterday and I didn’t have to shovel or salt cause it’s 40 friggin degrees right now and it’s melting on its own. By tomorrow (mid-40’s) it should be gone. If it was 30 degrees today, I would’ve had to go out and clean that shit up.
I swear I’m not buying another goddamn bag of rock salt until next winter.

Bloomberg News finally catches up to the fortune-telling OP and declares that winter is over:

Hope you're right R41, I'm done with winter. We've had some big snow and ice storms in April that I hope we don't see this year.

Not a 30 degree day in sight now! Winter is OVER bitches!
