The St. Edward's Weather Service has lifted the Ice Storm Warning. Freezing rain came to an end this morning, slightly early than previously anticipated. However, a total of 0.37 inches of ice coated the city, knocking down tree limbs and causing power outages. It could have been much worse, but it will still take several days to fully restore power. Unfortunately, icy conditions will remain prevalent for the rest of the day as a thick fog descends upon the city and temperatures hover near freezing. A Freezing Fog Advisory is in effect through early tomorrow morning.

The good news is that melting will begin tomorrow as the temperature rises to near 40 F under sunny skies. This weekend will be spring-like with sunshine and high temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Such conditions will be conducive to power restoration and clean-up.

Your citizens are lucky. It's the exception for severe weather to relent like that in Patricianopolis, at least this time of year (it would be more common in summer).

They're not always so lucky. It's not uncommon for stormy weather to persist after a severe event. Fortunately this time around power crews won't be on the top of telephone poles during a wind-driven rain storm or snow storm. However, a week of heavy rain is expected after this short spell of pleasant weather, so power crews may be trecking through the mud in the backwoods trying to reach isolated telephone poles next week.

The following forecast does not display my dream climate, just some unrealistic alien Pangea hypercontinental but precipitation-prone (!) climate:

http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/164/forsen.jpg

As you can see conditions are still solidly wintry, even by late March. The spring sun and powdery snowcover allows for serious daily temperature ranges.

March 23 : -35/-77C (-31/-107F) Ice fog in the am, ground blizzard in the pm. Peak wind: 75 km/h (47 mph). Extreme cold.
March 24 : -24/-63C (-11/-81F) Calmer and sunny. Warmer. Extreme cold.
March 25 : -25/-66C (-13/-87F). Calm and sunny. Extreme cold.
March 26 : -27/-65C (-17/-85F). Fair. Extreme cold.
March 27 : -26/-61C (-15/-78F). Calm and sunny. Extreme cold.
March 28 : -21/-59C (-6/-74F). Sunny, a bit warmer in the pm. Extreme cold.
March 29 : -18/-55C (0/-67F). Calm and sunny. Extreme cold.

That's quite a deluge. And persistent as well. Today the OMA is forecasting a severe thunderstorm outbreak for Patricianopolis that will drop 0.35 inches of rain, which is significant by local standards (but hardly unusual for Spring and Autumn). A strong cold front will come through tonight and 2-3 inches of snow is expected tomorrow along with high winds.

The long range forecast indicates that any warmth won't be returning for a while in my location. No warmth for my location means things like blinding snow on Easter Sunday, and since I have precognitive powers, don't be surprised if something like that actually takes place .

Yeah such stretches of heavy rain happen every now and then. Similar to the pineapple express phenomenon on the west coast.

Easter Sunday is looking cold and cloudy. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Easter and "nice" weather don't coincide very often in this climate. Egg hunts could still be held outdoors though. Just throw on some snow boots.

A major blizzard to hit Winchestertonfieldville for the first few days this week! Of course a little thing to know about Winchestertonfieldville just driving 30 minutes in any direction takes you to a different climate. Everything is EXACTLY 10 degrees colder in the North, 20 degrees colder in the West, 10 degrees hotter in the East, and 20 degrees hotter in the South (which has higher humidity and NEVER snows, and as a result only has 20 degree difference between day and night.)

Winchestertonfieldville

Average: 57/29

Monday: Cold, snowy, windy. High: 20. Low: -10. Up to 10 inches of snow.

Tuesday: More cold, snow, less wind. High: 25. Low: -19. 12 inches of snow.

Wednesday: Cold, overcast, no wind. High: 0. Low: -15. 2 inches of snow.

Thursday: Sunny, windy. High: 25. Low: 0.

Friday: Sunny, no wind, some clouds. High: 45. Low: 15.

Saturday: Sunny, no wind. High: 50. Low: 15.

Sunday: Cloudy, windy. High: 55. Low:25.
