It’s baseball season. It must be spring, right? Who am I kidding? This is spring like we’re out of the recession! A statistical case can be made, but no one believes either is happening any time soon.

That’s water under the bridge. What’s happened has happened. What about the future?
The BUFKIT¹ graph attached to the entry shows conditions at Bradley Airport over the next week as seen by the GFS model.
There is only one day forecast above 50°! Worse, that ‘warmth’ comes overnight–a sign it’s being advected in as a storm approaches. It’s a strong enough storm that I wouldn’t write off the chance of thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon.
There are no major winter events predicted, but three of the days have a chance for a little sleet or snow. A little sure, but it’s April for heaven’s sake!
My forecast: Spring will continue to suck.
