This morning the weather channel said mid teens here for the next 2 nights. Then mid morning it was upped to mid 20's the next 2 nights and now it looks like upper 20's to low 30's. Regardless of what it does i guess I will live through it all.
Not sure that is going to happen. I keep seeing geese heading north and then see some heading back south which is curious. Though I was coming back from a beer run and there was about two thousand of them in a field that I never seen come in or leave so I am thinking they are on their way.
Now as to weather? Hey it's March and I would expect nothing less than the wild hare weather we are having.
Snowing like a banshee this lovely morning! Me and my old S10 drove into the city in 4 wheel drive HI like we have hundreds of times in the past 18 years, nice and easy slinging a blinding amount of slush from it's wide all terrain tires.
The closer we got to Grand Rapids the more taillights we got to see sticking up out of the roadside ditches. Because if you are a city fool every time it snows is like the very first time you ever drove in snow.
With lots of flooding here in SC Ohio. I'm high and dry butt, the lower farm field was flooded yesterday, probably drained off today, have not been out to check on it. Wife was saying RT 23 into Columbus is closed due to flooding. Takes longer for the river to get here, but, like said, I'm high and dry above the flood plain where I live. We would worry more about the wind than the rain, snow - well - unless we have to drive somewhere.
Yesterday we had hail and thunderstorms. Overnight the temps dropped. I woke up to 20 mph winds gusting to 40 mph. It's climbed up to 32 degrees, 18 mph winds and maybe a little snow...if it feels like. Forecast is upper 30's to lower 40's over the next week and a half. Winter is trying but it WILL die...just not soon enough to suit me.
Oh! There will be NO burning of Indiana. California, yeah. Hoosierville, NO!
Had snow earlier this morning. Now the sun is trying to come out (needs a little more effort). Predicted high for today is 60. Up to 72 over the next day or 2. Then back to the cold for a few more days. Typical spring roller coaster weather for a few more weeks. Lake Michigan is still quite cold...like about 34 degrees and it takes a while to warm up to seasonal operating temps. Downstate and Kentucky will be be getting the usual BIG spring storms while we might get another sprinkling or 3 of snow. Doesn't matter now as spring AND summer are still on the way. Just wish it would hurry up!
Snow blanketed the South Island's high country and alpine passes as a low swept across the country today. Much of the South Island's high country and alpine passes saw snow overnight, including Lewis Pass, and Porters Pass.
MetService said there could be more to come, with the Kaikōura Ranges and high country in Canterbury and Otago facing more snow down to 500m later today.
The storm has also been bringing thunderstorms, gales and tornadoes to the North Island, causing severe damage to homes and cutting power to at least 12,000 properties.
Tekapo's Creel House B&B co-owner Rosemary Brown has lived in the area for more than 20 years, and said she had never seen so much snow so early in the year.
"It's like four weeks early, it's usually in May the amount of snow that we've received today.
"Sometimes we do get a dusting on the tops of the mountains in March, but in April we don't usually have autumn snow.
Weather cycles here are normal but it's still fun to whine a bit. Every few years we get a mean, mean winter that refuses to leave and that's what we got going right now. Last time we had this was 4 or 5 years ago.
Since I treasure hunt in the water I CLOSELY watch ice up and ice out on all the lakes in my large AO. Last mean ass winter a few years ago we still had ice on my most northern inland lakes at the last weekend in April, and there was still snowbank remains on some north facing road ditches and hillsides.
So all in all the weather cycles are as normal as I have seen them in my 50+ years.
Today we ride the boundary. 20 miles north in Michigan...Benton Harbor on the big lake, a high of 47. 30 miles south, Plymouth Indiana, a high of 74. Me? High of 67 by 3pm then a slight breeze off the big lake drops me down to about 55. When the breeze stops about sunset time to inch up to about 60. This is more like spring in northern Indiana. Next week will be highs in the low to mid 40s....
