Welcome to Spring 2019!
« on: March 19, 2019, 11:41:34 PM »
Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

The concept may seem completely foreign to you when you look out the window, but sometime between this posting and my usual return tomorrow, the Vernal Equinox will occur.  Here is a website with local times all over the world:

https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20190320T2158&msg=March%20Equinox%202019

In keeping with my tradition, I have taken a few photos to set the mood for the new season.  Sooner or later, you will staring seeing signs of Spring peeking beyond the cold stillness of Winter:



Of course, old man winter is likely to keep interfering at least for a time.  In California that means rain:



Another sign of Spring is the blooming of the Daffodils:



Yet even for Daffodils a little rain must fall:



Nonetheless, eventually the sun will return and Spring will bloom all over your world:



Of course this is the normal course of things and that does not in any way shape of form predict when this will happen!

Until then, grin and bear it!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Beautiful!

And helps me remember that it WILL turn green here in Maine once again too.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Dear Jenna, Weatheraardvark, and WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

You are certainly most welcome!  I understand that for some people it might feel premature.  I hope they can look forward even if the weather outside their window is anything but springlike. 

From Iowa,

My sympathies.  I've been trying to keep an eye on the flooding but I'm too overwhelmed locally to keep up.  I just found the NOAA report from which your graph comes from:

https://www.nws.noaa.gov/oh/2019NHA.html

There is also a real-time map of the United States with all the potential flooding risks:

https://water.weather.gov/ahps/

It does take as much as a few seconds to load.  At the moment it is a busy map.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Many farmers cannot put in a crop this year.  Their grain silos were flooded and farms as well.  Livestock is an unknown.  BUT FEMA is going to help to some extent, but still over 1200 homes are wiped out in IOwa.  Tough times, but some how we will advance forward.

It is tough for those who farm.

Still snowing here so I'll hold off with any photos. I was able to free my car from a snow berm last night with only 45 minutes of shoveling snow and ice. Hahaha. Welcome to Springtime in the Rockies.

Rain's final dance of Spring. (Re: Welcome to Spring 2019!)

Dear WeatherCat observers of the season's turning,

This morning I noticed a spider web that had caught droplets of water from the overnight storm.  It was pretty enough to try to capture it:



A bit later in the morning I spotted this patch of grass that was a bit overwhelmed by the storm:



The winds had blown down the stalks, but this grass had already started to turn to seed.  The weather is supposed to warm considerably at the end of this week and the start of the next.  The transition from California's wet season to the brown hills of summer might be very swift indeed!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Edouard and all WC'ers:

Anyone else see a fish form in that spiderweb? Pareidolia anyone?

Maine flooding anywhere near you? (Re: Welcome to Spring 2019!)

Dear Jenna, X-Air, and WeatherCat weather observers,

Anyone else see a fish form in that spiderweb? Pareidolia anyone?

If there had been a fish in that spider web, it would be long dead now.  Today's high was 73˚ F (22.7˚ C) with humidities in the 50% range.  Things are drying out very rapidly and will continue to do so as tomorrow's highs should approaching 80˚ (26.7˚ C) with a dry on-shore flow.

However, there has been some news headlines about flooding in Maine.  Is that anywhere close to your neck of the woods Jenna?

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I see it. Edouard is looking for an actual fish, rather than a spiritual one.
