Stubborn March Chill

While we do have a few “cracks” in the overall cold pattern, note how the chill wants to be very persistent in the next 8 days.

Cold Start

Until yesterday (Sunday), every single average daily temperature for the month of March was below normal. The coldest departure from normal was on Tuesday of last week resulting in a total departure 0f -9°F thus far.

We are still in a cold pattern, but at least periodically, we are starting to see some glimmers of springtime hope!

31° Celsius

That’s how old Dick Goddard would say he is!

Mr. Goddard stopped by the station on Friday and we surprised him with an elaborate cake to honor his 88th year around the sun. Even my cat, Frosty, posed to wish him a happy purrrrrrrthday.

Perspective

While perspective is indeed subjective and individual, it’s absolutely imperative for me. It becomes a basis from which I navigate through every day. Without it, I tend to stray, go off-course. This is why my personal time in God’s Word, The Bible, is high on my daily priority list. My favorite time to do that is while having my favorite meal, breakfast.

While reading the epistle 1 John, Chapter 2 (especially verse 15-17), I was reminded about those things that are truly important in life. I thought about that verse in light of the Oscars last night. Events like that are fine… in fact, I’m the recipient of two local Emmys for outstanding local weather segments. As fun as that was, it was even more fun giving one of the Emmy statues to my Dad and Mom… who proudly had it displayed on top of their living room television for everyone to see. (The other statue actually fell off a shelf in my home and shattered beyond repair.)

But fifty years from now, none of the awards or accolades will mean anything to anyone let alone have any eternal value. That’s why I read God’s Word as often as I am able. It helps me to stay grounded in a place that allows me to enjoy life pleasures without placing more value in them than what is wise.

Best Meal Of The Day

It’s always my intention to wake earlier than what I do on weekend mornings. Such was the case today. After a full brief on the weather scenario developing for the weekend while sipping on my first cup of coffee (see post below), I was determined to make the morning special by creating an omelette from some produce I forgot I had.

Add a little Asiago cheese and an English muffin and…

….you have breakfast fit for a prince, made so by the King of Kings’ rescue mission for us 2,000 years ago and whose Word on which I also dined. Food for the soul, food for the body.

I’ve begun reading 1 John. One of my favorite passages says that, “God is light, and in Him there is no darkness.” Imagine for a moment a place that has NO darkness AT ALL. That also means a place in which you will not find any shadows! Pondering those things that God has planned for those who place their trust in Jesus is an interesting exercise. God’s Word says that none of us could ever even come close to imagining the amazing place that Christ is preparing for those who trust in His Son for salvation (1 Corinthians 2:8-10).

I can’t imagine living my life without the King of Kings living in my heart.

Windy Sunday Coming

A deepening low pressure system will pass by to out west, but certainly close enough to cause concern.

A High Wind Watch for Sunday is in effect for possible wind gusts between 50-60 MPH by Sunday afternoon and evening. This may mean scattered power outages. Secure loose objects outdoors now.

Supermoon Pics

Here are a few neat “supermoon” photos from last night. Respect to each photographer who posted these on Twitter.

Here is Episode #056 of my podcast WeatherJazz® which goes into some of the dynamics of the supermoon.

Once we get the snow and wintry mix to change to rain on Wednesday afternoon, look for a 5-day stretch when highs should slip into the 40s°F.

The Romance Of Fog

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day… I would imagine that busy workweek couples will celebrate with a dinner this weekend

What is the coziest kind of weather you can think of for that dinner? Snow? Rain? Warm, dry breezes? Fog?

FOG?!?!?

Sure! Why not? After sitting on a couple of interviews about the “sentimental, romantic” nature of fog and foghorns, what better day to promote it than today. You can listen to the podcast audio below. Enjoy.

Valentine Snow Stats

The USA has the most snowpack (Lower 48) it has seen in over 5 years on St. Valentine’s Day:

Out of the last 5 years, Cleveland has observed snow on the ground for 4 of them (there was no snow on the ground in 2017).

Looks like a cool-ish weekend with a return to normal temperatures next week. No major weather systems until next Wednesday.
