Anyone confused by the recent weather? I know I am.
Sunday felt like spring was about to jump from around the corner and encourage all the flowers to send out their petals. But the naked trees and dead leaves on brown grass quickly reminded me that we're still a few cold months away from the first blooms.
Further striking down my thoughts on spring was this week's forecast.
There are good chances for showers throughout today, according to the National Weather Service. The high peaks at only 57, with the low at 36.
And then on Tuesday, there's a chance the dreaded S word will enter the equation—the same one that joined together with devastating-sounding word fragments like -mageddon and -pocalypse last winter.
No, it doesn't look like there will be a snowmageddon or snowpocalypse this week . But on Tuesday, before 1 p.m., there is a chance for snow showers mixed in with rain. The high is set at 43; the low at 35.
Then for the rest of the week, there aren't any chances for rain or snow, with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
And for every day after Tuesday, that's probably when you should consider going grocery shopping. You know how everyone and their cousin tends to get that strange craving for bread when the S word gets thrown around.
