A Quiet Evening

February 18, 2009

IMG_3236  A very nice picture sent in today by Bobby Corser.  It's an early flower…a crocus.  They show up just before the daffodils…the earliest harbinger of Spring.  I don't know if today felt like spring…at 55 degrees, but highs closer to 60 the next few days should give us more of a spring-like feel.

Not much to say tonight, except that models are pretty clear on a change to some wetter weather starting Sunday.  Once again, I see the 00z GFS has a split in the jet still clearly visible all the way through NEXT Thursday.  Sure it's wetter and cooler early next week, but the 00z looks more split than the earlier 12/18z models the 2nd half of next week.  At this point I don't see a significant change back towards stormy or very wet weather.

I couldn't make it to the AMS meeting tonight…too far from work.  Go ahead and post comments below to let us know how it went!  Mark Nelsen
