When you have been as far below average for temperatures as long as we have, it is hard to be disappointed with our recent warm up.  Although, these past couple days and even what we are or will be experiencing today is still below average.  Most of you have now recorded your first 50° temperature of the season and it was the second latest such occurrence on record for many locations.  This weekend if you don’t have any snow on the ground, the first 60° readings of the year may be recorded.  This in turn would be around the 10th latest occurrence on record.  These warmer days may briefly end on Tuesday, but warmer air is expected thereafter.
