Well, my thinking was heat may kill the virus. Lots of heat and humidity.  This would be a great year for it.

That would be good.

Oklahoma City set a record high of 92 on Thursday.  It was also 92 at my station.

It looks like our spring green-up will be earlier than normal. . .

Here are some pictures I took 20120327 just south of I-80:




Greening up in Spring is obviously variable!

Yes, I wasn't questioning time of year it just looked like a wonderful warm spring to be that green.  Different areas of country are almost summer-like already.
 
Still pretty brown with natural grass in NC Nebraska but starting to see more green in the lawns.

I was checking the frost line about the top 6" is thawed now but hard as rock any lower so sprinklers are still off.

Sorry if I seemed terse. Was in a hurry.

Things arenít nearly as far along here this Spring either. I was just illustrating how Ďaverageí isnít normally what we experience, i.e. it isnít Ďnormalí.

Spring is struggling to arrive here in Northern Kansas. Town is always a week ahead of us out here.

Just saw footage from a still camera of a tornado going through Jonesboro, AR on TWC. Starts out fairly small, then by the time it leaves the frame, it's becoming a wedge. It was moving too.

One of the quicker moving I've seen. Looked like it was scooting along at least 60 mph not giving much time to react. EF-3 is what I'm hearing on radar data.

Yeah, at least. I just saw the velocity loop and it formed a very distict couplet signature just as it moved through town. Yikes...

March numbers are ridiculous down here. Currently at 6 degrees above mean and .06 for rain for the month. Have never seen a March this hot and dry before. It's weird to be running the AC this much in March. It's actually one of the best months weather wise with squall lines moving through and temps in 70's to low 80's. Todays forcasted high is 95.
The numbers are slightly skewered because I had a hardware failure for the first 4 days of the month.
Hopefully April will bring some decent weather. The long term GFS is hinting at that.
