The Ides of March: betwixt winter and spring

I didn't mention that we had had wonderfully warm weather and beautiful blue skies, temps in the upper 70s even, for more than a few days lately. Didn't mention because we were too busy ENJOYING IT!!! Now, after a couple of extremely windy days bringing in the clouds and cool air from places up north, March reminds us that early spring is not early summer; rather, it's that fickle, changeable series of many weeks between winter and summer. Yep, that's what spring is.

Today: Cloudy with showers. Cold. High 46F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 70 percent.

Tonight: Rain showers this evening mixing with snow showers overnight. Low near 35F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precip 60 percent.

Tomorrow: Cloudy with rain and snow showers ending in the morning. Partial clearing in the afternoon. High 49F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precip 40 percent.

Tomorrow night: A few clouds. Low 34F. Winds W at 5 to 10 mph.

Thursday: Mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the upper 50s and lows in the upper 30s.

In Oklahoma we might be basking in 70s sunny weather while the northeast gets a ton more snow, but that might be followed by an ice storm before April. You just never know. That's spring for ya. I'm breaking out the hot cocoa tonight.
