To heck with the G-hogs, let's use NOAA's outlooks for the 6-10 day and 8-14 day outlooks!
6-10 day above
8-14 day above
Dang! Below average... 60% chance of below average in our area on the 8-14 day. That's a pretty high probability (on this scale) for so far into the future! Guess what - it's going to be below seasonal!!!
The good news is that "below average" should at least be "above freezing" for daytime high temps... No more killer blasts of -20 (I think). Also - these cold spells aren't causing as much trouble further south as they were during the winter - so our migrants should be getting ready to invade our borders by late month.
Speaking of migrants late month - we're only 3 weeks away for the chances of neotropic migrants and insane vagrants! More likely 4 weeks, but it has happened earlier. All it takes is one good storm...
6-10 day outlook for rain - pretty high in our area. April showers!
Shouldn't be that far away! (I hope)......
