Only going to get up to 40 today and snow 1-3 inches.  About done with the snow for the season.

The severe thunderstorm watch was a bust. It didn't even rain. The high today is cooler than normal, at only 72 degrees. Still cloudy.

Creeping up towards the 70s here and I'm not liking it one bit.

Meh. I'm finally getting a tan and the days aren't twelve minutes long. I'm loving this.

Meanwhile, I almost had to laugh at the though of getting a tan in April in the Northeast. It's rainy season here - we've had rain four of the past five days!

And I wish I had something to do outside...

It's been at least a week since a totally cloudy and/or rainy day. It's well deserved, honestly, as we just get so few sunny days between October and March. Vitamin D deficiency during fall and winter is real, and too often ignored by locals around here.

Usually Spring and Summer in the Pacific Northwest are quite sunny, contrary to popular belief. Still rains, but more sun. Summer is actually very dry and is the cause for rather frequent brush fires especially in freeway medians.

Yes, and of course, rain vs. sun is only part of the equation: even if it's sunny, it's not too easy to get a sun tan when it's still cold enough for a coat and gloves, as it is here today. 39 degrees and raining - blech.

Summers are usually great here too, but the difference is that springs can be rainy, especially early spring. Usually less so once we get to May/June, which usually have the best weather along with September/October.

It hit 80 degrees in some inland suburbs today, and it's going to get even hotter tomorrow.

I might bite the bullet this year and just get an AC unit for my bedroom.

Unseasonably cold for mid-April. Usually the high this time of year is about 75-80 degrees, but today the high was just 61 degrees. The wind was also blowing pretty hard, especially this morning, making it seem much colder than the 52 degrees it was at 0900.

Snow this early in the year is unusual for Wichita.  The first snowfall is often in December, sometimes even January or February.  Out where I grew up in northwestern Kansas, snow in October was more normal because, even though it was kind of in the rain shadow of the Rockies, some mountain snowstorms strong enough to make it past the front range were also strong enough to make it past the state line as well.  Here in the southeastern part of the state, though, snow in October is unusual.

The highways were slick as I was coming to work, and the some of the clearest spots were actually the worst:  ice instead of snow to drive on.

Well, I just found out that this October snow is even more unusual than I realized.  Wichita broke the record for snowfall on October 26, which had previously been only 0.5 inches.  Any snowfall today automatically breaks the record for October 27, because there has never been any recorded snowfall on this date in Wichita.  We also broke the record for lowest high temp and lowest low temp yesterday.

A strange year for weather around here.  Not only was our first snowfall unusually early in the season, but here we are in the middle of April and it's currently snowing.  I'm certainly not used to brushing snow off the car before work this late in the year.

Looks like you guys are getting what we got last night.  Looks like only about 3" at my house, but the roads were pretty icy last night (which is relatively rare for here given our winter weather possibilities).

Reporting from Platteville, WI, we had a very small amount of snow flurries this morning. Current temperature is 39 degrees.
