Chilly Start To Spring

Frost and freeze warnings were posted over the weekend deep into the southern states. A chilly northwest flow of winds aloft will keep the cool temps in place one more day.

Warmer weather will spread north this week on southerly winds. Portions of Texas will see 80s and a few 90s believe it or not.

60s and 70s will spread as far north as the Mason Dixon line.

If you aren't quite ready for the warmer weather, head north to the states along the Canadian border -- where highs this week will be in the 30s and 40s.

And for those in the north, hoping for warmth -- just hold on a bit, it will be here soon enough.

The sun angle continues to climb higher and higher with each passing day. That will help spread the warmer air further north in the days and weeks to come.

Speaking of the sun, have you ever tracked it's position in the sky to see just how much it changes over say the period of 2 weeks?

  1. Here in Oshkosh, we are forecasted to stay at or below normal for the remainder of the week. Last year at this time we hit the 70's two days in a row for daytime highs. Not gonna happen this year. It's just around the corner though...

    Tracking the sun is fun. I enjoy watching the shadows creep along during a cloudless day. For example OSNW3 daily movie from Mar 22, 2008.
