Who's ready for Spring?

Luckily for us, it looks like the warm weather is here to stay.

KCRG Cedar Rapids reports the Climate Prediction Center has released its outlook for March. The latest outlook update shows above-average temps this March for much of the midwest, including Eastern Iowa.

The newly-revised outlooks for March now favor above normal temperatures for eastern Iowa, as well as equal chances of above or below normal precipitation. This is in contrast to the half-month lead time version, which had near to below normal temperatures and below-normal precipitation favored.

This lines up with our ten-day forecast from the National Weather Service, which shows highs mainly in the 50's (and even 60's) through March 15.

If the outlook proves to be true for the rest of March, it looks like we'll have comfortable weather for St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
