Keep all your gear ready for this week… Umbrellas jackets, toques and sunglasses, you’ll likely need it all.

This morning we have a chance of flurries. There were already flurries falling on the Hump when I went over at 6:30AM and it has gotten more serious now by 6:50AM. Please be careful. We still have another month and a half before we can put away the winter tires. Tuesday there will be a chance for more showers and flurries in the early morning but it should clear up in the afternoon. This will be your day for sunglasses.

On Wednesday we get a bit of a break but it should cool right off in preparation for Thursday when things get busy again and we have more chance of flurries changing to rain. On Friday we might get some wind, it doesn’t look like much really.

So as you can see, a little bit of everything. It must be almost spring.

In other news, over the weekend I mounted the station on a long arm complete with a hinge so i can swing it around to work on it and a lock so that it stays in place.

This should give the most accurate temperature and humidity readings possible in the summer time.

Happy Monday!
