A trip through the seasons this week...

...starting with near summer-like weather, then perhaps getting a little close to winter for the comfort of those who greatly enjoyed this past weekend.

Happy Monday morning everyone!

I hope you got a chance to get out there and enjoy yesterday's weather. Highs hit the mid-SEVENTIES-- not a problem with this guy :-)

The good news is that we can get a little bit of this weather to continue today, starting with a NOT frosty start to the day...

This is a pretty decent storm system, but moving far too north of us for snowfall, at least on the front end. This kind of cyclone often causes a few fits for forecasters for throwing a few jack-rabbit showers that jump out ahead of the main line. The front itself is where most of the showers will be.

The models indicate people in the Charleston metro area can get a good chunk of the day in outside and dry before this system works through. They also say that by the time Tuesday rolls around, we'll be back to the jackets and coats.

You can track the progression back on the GFS output for maximum temperatures:

...Depressed yet?

I know a lot of you are snow-lovers, but really, after a weekend like this it doesn't take long to be just a little-bit okay with spring arriving, right?

We're not quite done with the cool weather though, as all the crop developers know that the last frost isn't for more than a month from now (typically). The week beyond this one still has us in seasonable or seasonably cool weather.

The southern part of the country is looking drier too. Perhaps a little La Nina pattern working in for a change...
