The beginning of Daylight Saving Time is one of the signs that spring is around the corner. And for many parts of the country, it is certainly starting to feel more spring like. After such an extremely cold winter, it doesn’t take much of a warm up to get people excited about warmer weather. For some cities in the Midwest, such as Des Moines, temperatures tomorrow will be the warmest they’ve been since mid November.
However, the warm up will be short lived:
Minneapolis, MN will also be thawing out this week and potentially reaching the 50 degree range for the first time since November 16. With huge amounts of snow still on ground, these above freezing temperatures will lead to a tremendous amount of melting throughout the next few days:
A few ups and downs this week for the Chicago area. Starting and ending the week in the 50s but a brief cool down to the 30s and chance of snow will remind Chicago that it’s still March.
Also expecting a roller coaster ride for the DC area as temperatures swing from the mid 60s to the 30s from Tuesday to Thursday.
A look at the temperatures across the rest of the nation as we wrap up the weekend:
