It is the final day of winter Saturday, February 29th! That is, "Meteorological Winter". Meteorological Winter is separated into December, January and February. Meteorological Spring begins March 1 and lasts through April and May, before Meteorological Summer begins June 1. This is separated for easier record keeping, and also to make all the seasons evenly spread across three months-worth of days. For you spring lovers, rejoice! The final day of February Saturday will be chilly in parts of the Northwest and Northeast, but mild for much of the central United States. A surge of warmth will push through the central and southern Plains on Sunday for the first day of March. There will be a few cool shots of air from time to time, but in general the weather pattern suggests a warmer-than-average trend through the first week of March. That is why we put together a list of cities that will begin March "like a lion" or "like a lamb." If you have not heard of this saying before, this means that the weather will be very active and stormy if it "begins like a lion" and the opposite, starting quiet and sunny for those starting like a lamb. Remember, you can always check your local forecast by entering your city, state or zip code in the search bar at the top-left side of our homepage!
