I saw that too…and Joe Lundberg commented about it in his blog.

It looks like it will get warmer on Fri (highs near 50 F), then a modest cool down for the weekend into early next week (highs in the lower 40’s in the Tri-State area). After that, it looks like a prolonged surge of the southerly flow out of the subtropics will really let loose. About a week from today (Thur March 8th), a surge of warmer temps will invade the Middle Atlantic and Tri-State area. The WC has highs of 55 to 65 F from NYC to Washington DC by next Thursday:





Then, by Monday, March 12th – the GFS has temps on much of the East Coast from 10 to 20 F above normal. Many of the cities like NYC, New Haven, Trenton…etc could crack 70 F by the 12th:

JL talks about it here:

But then there would few polite posts for me to read...
Sorry you feel that way. When the warm weather fan stops throwing subtle digs at the cold weather fans then the cold weather fans will do the same. Until then GAME ON.

Edit: saw your post Jay...okay, for you I will stop

A decent snow from this in NH. About 8-9 inches and still falling. Hopefully this extreme blowtorch pattern for March will not come to fruition like the GFS is indicating.

Also, can anyone offer an explanation why temperatures have been so far above average for many months now with no signs of any average or below average temperatures on the horizon overall.

lol.. I have no clue and baffled myself given the extent of it. Polar Vortext still in "northern" Canada, Ridge wants to build this way. Mostly a fast progressive pattern from Pacific just driving the fronts in and out with nothing to stall them.

Enjoy your snow. I was in Shelton at 11am (20 min from coast) and remenece of snow still around even after all the rain.

According to the Climate Prediction Center, 2011 was in the top 5 for warmest average temperatures globally since records have been kept so I am not surprised.

Just measured outside and I have 10.5 inches. Perhaps that will cut down slightly on the blowtorch next week Oh well, I have to enjoy this snow while I can

I don’t know about blow torch …but the pattern seems primed for a spring surge of warmth according to Joe Lundberg. Most places south of the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, and upper New England... should get pretty warm by next Thur according to Joe: Sat should have highs in the 50’s in the Tri-State area….then a cooler turn early next week (Mon – Wed)….followed by another warm surge by Thur with temps forecasted to close in on 60 F in NYC. Based on the GFS...it wouldn't surprise me if NYC hit 60 - 62 F and Washington DC cracked 70 F by next Thursday:
