    I cant think of many countries that can hit 100 degrees before the spring equinox. Makes me proud to be an American.

    He's just taking the current GFS verbatim and increasing it a bit too. I don't take his word seeing things can change very quickly, and that's just 1 GFS run. He probably just invested in air conditioning companies.

    To be fair he did say the 80s would be followed by a sharp cooldown with highs in the 40s and 50s by middle of next week.

    I know it's not going to amount to much, but I think it's worth mentioning that this s/w currently over central Ontario may bring a chance for a couple sct'd rain/snow showers on Wednesday to east-central NC. While there won't be much moisture to work with (all we'll likely have is what's leftover from the Great Lakes), the synoptic-scale forcing for ascent (largely due to cyclonic vorticity advection w/ some contribution from differential thickness) will aid in triggering a couple light-moderate rain/snow showers across the area. There's a fat chance any one particular location anything, but I could see a few lucky spots picking up some surprise token flakes.

    Consequently most of the global models are sniffing out a few token flakes

    Not sure how much the northeast can take of this. Feel for the DC people, maybe this will be there event.

    You going to be up there long enough to force the next 2 potential systems south?

    Here's a preliminary snow/sleet accumulation map for yesterday's winter storm in NC. The far NW Piedmont and northern mountains were the big winners w/ 3-6", a mesolow developed in the northern Sandhills late in the afternoon and evening and likely enhanced snowfall totals just east and northeast of Raleigh w/ 1.5" of snow recorded even down into Smithfield.

    We sure do. Yesterday's storm bumped it up to an A for me, but it looks like winter wants to hold on for longer. Maybe a couple more shots at seeing snow this week, and maybe a shot next week on the first day of spring.

    The overall "hang toughness" is simply fascinating ...

    Magnificent March continues here with a low of 34 last night, similar expected tonight, and a near 32 Wed night! The days have been and will continue to be absolutely magnificent with near perfect wx for outdoors/walking (highs upper 50s to 60s and desert dry RH).

    Euro is close too. It shifted a little south from 00z and is close to having North NC into something.

    The air above our heads is going to be brutally cold tomorrow morning in NC, if it wasn't for the March 1993 superstorm, we'd be setting new daily record lows. I seriously can't believe we could be looking at a mixed layer extending from the surface up to 550-600 hPa and the tropopause is arguably almost down to 500 hpa lol.

    NWS RAH mentioning the potential for scattered snow flurries tomorrow morning with this ridiculously cold mid-upper level trough.
