  1. It will be nice to have a few spirngiike days, because as you said in your earlier post, it looks like the Polar Vortex (at least in a modified form) seems determined to pay yet another visit by early next week. Wouldn’t it be unbelievable if we got yet another March snowfall?

    1. The NAO index is dropping and the models are looking interesting early to mid next week. Looks like we could have a classic Nor’easter at some point here before April Fools Day. I would be laughing if we got nailed with another foot or more of heavy, wet snow … it would certainly remind some of the elderly population here (that are from here) of what Winters were like during the 1960s and 1970s… cold and snowy!

  2. Since snow that fell after midnight isn’t included, will you be doing a final season update? Thanks.

    1. I will certainly do an update sometime next week or next weekend as we may get another snow storm before March is out.
