It seems as though over the next week (the first week of Spring!) we’ll be in a bit of an in-between place for weather.
The first day of Spring, the vernal equinox, when day and night are roughly equal in length, will be March 20th.
The first moment of Spring will occur at 16:21 (4:21PM) PDT here on Sunday March 20th.
The moment that you will feel closest to our celestial cousin will be at 12:10PM tomorrow, Saturday. Unfortunately the moon isn’t rising until 8PM on Saturday, but it will still be plenty close. 🙂
As I said, the first week of spring will be pretty back and forth. No major rain events as the storm track moves South. But that also means that we will have some cold air that could give us a little bit of the white stuff. Nothing unusual for this time of year really. The week after it looks like we’re in for another round of battering from Pacific storms. Not as big as last week, but nothing to scoff at.
Oh, and if you’re wondering about any radiation that might come over from Japan. I wouldn’t worry too much… but if you want to see how the weather patterns could push what little there will be over here….
