After a wet, stormy cool West and warm East during January, February, we’ve seen a flip in March with warmer, more settled West and colder, snowier East. In fact, March is turning out colder than January and February in many Eastern locales. Rather rare.
Last weekend witnessed the historic blizzard…
An astonishing 58 inches of snow fell in Bolton Valley, Vermont while Binghamton, NY witnessed their snowiest day on record.
Then the Northeast’s coldest March 11-17 on record for several sites.
Here’s how March is shaping up thus far.
Quite the contrast to February which was the warmest February on record for many.
So what about April?
Certainly the CFSv2 is strongly hinting at a Western trough/Eastern ridge and return to the upper air setup seen back in winter.
