Here is a live cam in Washington DC. Looks like the temps of near 70 F have wiped out any snow cover that was left:





At this rate, the snowcover should be gone by the middle of next week across the Tri-State area. After a cool shot on Tue, the southerly flow will only get stronger. Here are the current temps: This is what I call a nice East Coast late winter temp map:

Well all ugly weather patterns end

However, between my greenhouse and Florida ...it was a breeze. Today I got the first flowers on my orange tree - I'll be seeing oranges in no time. Of course I am working on another trip to south Florida next month. So winter was really a breeze for me again

I spoke too soon about the warmth and record highs.....because today was warmer than predicted both Bridgeport and Hartford missed daily record highs by just one degree (Hartford's was 55, Bridgeport's as 56; highs were 54 and 55 respectively).

You’re pretty close:

More accurately…the amount of winter I’m forced to endure through careful planning and my greenhouse retreat is always minimal… even in a once in 20 year cold/snowy pattern like we had from from December 26th to Feb 3 this season. Having a greenhouse that hits 80 F in January and family who has a hammock between two 100 - ft coconut palms in south Florida works wonders for us “heat misers”.

Look at it another way: It would be like you winter fans having a freezer you could step into from May to September… and relatives in Siberia.

It also helps when you have days like today that hit 55 F in the late February. A warm winter day... is a great way to waste winter days

Enjoy the quiet week folks. Quick cool down tomorrow then a rebound to 40's and 50s. Then here we go with storms after this week..

~ Light showers Saturday

~ Slighter Bigger storm on Tuesday like I been saying for 2 weeks now. Its flip flopping between cold and warm, at this moment its rain, to ice to snow on backend. I think Hartford, Tolland & Windham have best chance at 2-4" right now.

~ Bigger storm on 27th, 28th and 1st..Rain to snow as Artic air comes back down.

Just a note: Even at all snow for the last storm, it would mean 6-8" and I think we all can handle that now a days. lol .. Timing is crucial on this storm. Still too far..

Looks like the snow cover will be fighing for it's life this week.
