Final Post for the 2017-2018 Season

created at 8:53 a.m. on Tue, Apr 3, 2018 - updated at Noon - This might be the final post. Below normal cold, however, is forecast for days after today. It has been weeks between posts. March 2018 might have been one of the most stable March months in recent memory. The consistency was surprising. High temps in the 30s and 40s and low temps in the 20s with a good bit of sunshine and dry.

In the first half of March, we had occasional snow squalls, mainly north of Toledo. We received over one-inch of rainfall over the final days of March. This past winter produced average or below average snowfall, but we had good periods of cold weather. The season was more winter-like than the previous two seasons. We have a chance for severe thunderstorms today.

created at 10:13 a.m. - updated at 4:50 p.m. - After three nice days with temps in the 50s to around 60 degrees and a lot of sunshine, the first day of the meteorological spring is ugly. It's rainy, windy, and chilly with temps in the upper 30s. I've always considered this to be the worst weather conditions to be outdoors, except for disasters, of course. Winter Weather Advisories exists for Monroe and Fulton counties. Areas to the north and west of Toledo might receive 4 to 6 inches of snowfall this afternoon and evening.
