Forgot to comment this on March 20. The winter part of this March definitely has been delivering on special spot Valdosta Airport's winter heat: average high March 1-19 is 25C which is even warmer than the average for tropical Miami Beach within the same time period.

In fact, that's about as warm as the winter parts of the March 2015 and March 2020 I so regret not monitoring Valdosta explicitly for. I guess 2024 makes up for missing those.

One thing I like about weather models. You don't have to wait until 2100 to find out if they are accurate

I suspect it's using the upper levels patterns, which definitely are showing the cold is coming.

And they are also really strange looking

Oh sure I know everybody went to the Spring thread and are celebrating record heat. But Mother Nature always bats last.

Also, there is this one really annoying person that ALWAYS posts in whatever thread is the latest "let's talk about our weather", and not seeing those posts has been heavenly.

So the blizzard is a certainty at this point.

Currently said station has been glitched out since February 21, which is the longest it has ever done that, and my query to WeatherSTEM to fix it goes unanswered. Luckily there is a station at FSU which tends to be quite similar that I have used as my workaround to fill in its gaps, and it's still going, so the FSU data can be substituted until the Challenger Learning Center station gets going again.

Also, contrary to what some people think, I have no reason to believe they overread temperatures because of concrete thermal radiation. Daytime highs are colder than the referential cold hole airport (exactly the opposite of what would happen if thermal radiation was causing a problem), and the substantially warmer nighttime temperatures are exactly what one would expect from their moister clay soil and locations on tall, cold air-draining hilltops (as well as not being artificial cold holes like the airport is).
It's not winter anymore, but at last! The Challenger Learning Center WeatherSTEM is back online since 4:24 PM yesterday.

So that would be 42 full days and a bit of another day that they were offline! I can't overstate how grateful I am that the FSU WeatherSTEM kept things going with substitutable data.
