Good Thursday morning to you!

I'm finally getting over the snowpocalypse that we had. 😛 I think we need a break. :classic_dry:

Anyway... today will start our 3 day rise to the 60's and then guess what is coming? YES, RAIN! You know... that moisture we can't get when it's cold but only when it's warm? That rain! Here are the 7 day WPC rainfall totals, look familiar? 



After today. temperatures will be above normal for the next 7 days, and next Tuesday appears to be the warmest day. Beach time! :classic_biggrin:



The time period around the 8th looks interesting, and the GFS has shown some snow off and on for 3-4 runs now, the 00z Euro this morning shows some around that time period as well. Around the 8th is the target time for the cold to return, and the Euro has been more adamant about deeper cold than the GFS, but they both show the cold returning.

The GFS ensemble is more excited about snow than the Euro, but both keep the chance for snow in the picture after the 8th. 



I'm calling e25 for my own, you gonna have to find your own snow! 😜
