Out Like a Lamb
Monday Pollen Report
Sunday’s cool showers have given trees some nourishment for pollination, but the lack of warm sunshine thru Tuesday will hold photosynthesis down. That should keep pollen levels from getting too high.
Still, a warm night with a break in the showers should generate pollen counts up near 100 grains per cubic meter on Tuesday. Remember 100 is considered high but really bad spring days exceed 1000!
By the way, more pollen cleansing showers are in the forecast on Tuesday so the higher pollen counts should occur at dawn before the new showers arrive.
The March Lamb “Baahs”
March came in like a Paper Lion this year with a brisk wind and temperatures near 50 not too tough to take. Along the way, it has been wet (more than 5 inches) and windy (Yeager airport measured its highest wind ever at 84 mph). It has snowed heavily (a general 2”-6” on Home and Garden weekend), there has been a tornado in Kanawha County and highs have briefly touched 70. Now that’s a meteorological mishmash!
As for this week, March is going out like a showery lamb with warm and fuzzy temperatures. The Reds had their season opener delayed by rain today at the Great American Ballpark.
In Cleveland the wind is howling out to center and as I write this the Tribe has already scored 7 runs in 2 innings!
Buc fans, a mild and breezy night is on tap as the Pirates open in Atlanta tonight. Just the chance of a brief shower expected there.
A brief break in the rain locally on Wednesday will be followed by another wet cycle by Thursday night and Friday lasting perhaps until Saturday morning little league openings. I will keep you posted.
