Weather Talk: 'Gut feelings' about what's in store
Since this warm spell began, many people have asked me about “gut feelings” (theirs or mine), as to how much winter weather remains. The premise being that a number of people “have a feeling” we have seen the last of snow and cold. A good weather forecaster does not use “gut feelings” to make a forecast because such a premonition would be baseless.

Weather Talk: Blizzard unlikely at this point
In order for us to get socked by a blizzard this spring, the pattern will need to change. At present, the Polar Jet Stream is too weak and to far north to be a threat. The far more active Subtropical Jet Stream could shift northward and bring snow, but a real blizzard would not be likely from such a set up.

Weather Talk: Are we due for a March blizzard?
It is a myth that there are always huge blizzards in March. In the distant past as well as in recent years, March and April pass without any blizzards at all. Of course, it is also true that some of our most severe blizzards in history have happened in March.

Average doesn't mean much when it comes to weather
Average March snowfall is 9.1 inches. Average April snowfall is 3.0 inches. This does not mean we are for sure in for a foot of snow before spring. Nor does this mean we should expect around a foot of snow unless something goes wrong with the weather. What is average implies nothing about what is supposed to happen.

Weather Talk: Even on cold days, sun now causing snow to melt

The days are getting longer but, more to the point, the sun is getting higher in the sky. More direct sunlight is able to pass through the atmosphere and heat the ground. Bright, white snow reflects a lot of the sunlight, but darker surfaces like roads and roofs absorb some of the rays and warm up.
