Winter Not Done...

While our temps have rebounded from last week’s chill, there are signs that many more cold front will be coming during the next several weeks.  In fact, this is the time of the year for strong fronts that sometimes bring severe weather and this is our Severe Weather Awareness Week.   Fortunately, it appears that the strongest storms with our next front will stay to our north & east, but we will not miss out on the temperature drop.  Tuesday and Wednesday will be Spring Like (80+) before it’s back to sweaters and coats (40s) on Thursday.  Friday doesn’t look much better (near 50) with a slow warming into the weekend.    This up & down pattern is fairly typical for the transition from Winter into Spring.  The next issue for us will be watching the River rise IF we get heavy Spring rains up north on top of their snow cover.  A minor rise will bring the Mississippi up to 7 feet at the Carrollton gage this week, far below where it causes any problems.  Stay tuned!
