Leaping out of a snowy February

The 35 snowfall events of winter 2008 received plenty of press on Thursday. A snowy February is finally making its exit, so it’s time to see what the (near) future may hold, weather-wise, for Chicagoland.

From the Farmer’s Almanac: March will come in like the proverbial lion, with stormy conditions predicted for the Great Lakes region.

From the Old Farmer’s Almanac (not to be confused with the Farmer’s Almanac): The heaviest snowfall periods, like the month of February, should be over. Winter was predicted to be warmer and drier than usual. No specs on March, but wet snow is predicted for April.

From NOAA: Precipitation, low temperatures – basically, more February. History bears out that the weather will improve…eventually.

What does all of this mean for motorists? A snow-flecked commute may be in order for Friday. Nature’s car wash (rain) may greet us within a week, or it may still fall from the sky as snow. To stay abreast of this weather wackiness, consult your Weather Forecast Beacon.

Stay warm and dry, and “welcome, March!”
