    Let The Snow Melting Commence!
    Okay, I won't hide the fact that I haven't enjoyed snow events these past couple of years; how come you ask? Well, it came down to when I was a meteorologist on the radio in New York(and then on the short-lived IQ 106.9 based out of...

    Partly Sunny & Remaining Seasonable Tuesday

    Sunshine, Late Afternoon Clouds, & Lower 40s Friday
    New Year's Day was as average of a day as you can get; granted there was a gusty wind over 30mph across the region(that created a wind chill into the lower 30s) when you look at just the numbers it was pretty damn close to the 41/27 high and...

    Seasonable With A Sun & Cloud Mix Sunday
