First Off, just 20 more days until daylights savings time. And to be honest I really cant wait for it to warm up. You know that first warm day you feel late winter, that makes you feel like, yeah i like snow, but im ready for it to warm up so i can get out of the house. That feeling. Anyway Daylights savings time which adds one hour of daylight to your day, begins Sunday/March/10/2013.
Now lets talk about spring. Right now I do think that spring will come in just about on time, I do think that there will be a couple of surprise winter storms in March that would make a lot of snow starved snow lovers happy. But for the most part, I expect spring to start on time, in terms of temperature.
Now Severe weather wise. I expect severe weather to be a focal point as we head into the month of April. Especially in the southeast. As you head towards the east coast, I do not expect the severe weather to be as bad, but I do expect to see severe weather break out in the eastern states as well. So far this year we have received 103 tornadoes, which beats the 3 year average by 21, and February inst even over yet. I expect this pattern to continue over the next few months. While I do not expect a repeat of the tornado season of 2011, I do expect a blend of The 2011 and 2012 seasons which still would be above average tornado wise.
Temperature wise, overall in March through May, I agree with the national weather service, that when its all set and done temperatures in most of the lower 48 will have averaged above average for that time period.
So without further or do, here is my national spring 2013 outlook. Any question, please leave them bellow and I will try to answer some of them between 7-8pm today.
