End of Winter?

It sure feels like it today.  Even these daffodils are thinking spring is here and are just about to bloom.

The medium range forecast models, however, suggest spring is not here to stay.  Most members of the GEFS ensemble, for example, call for the pattern to eventually change towards next weekend, ultimately parking a trough over the western US.

The European Center model wants to bring winter back as well.

We'll see in a few days if these forecasts come to fruition, but I wouldn't put away the down jacket yet.

  1. Skiing Utah next Sunday thru Wednesday. Think we'll get some fresh powder for our trip, slightly concerned about snow levels?
