Hi folks. Well it's been a while since my original thread regarding current weather patterns, which can be found
here - What is going on with the weather???
and the more recent one, which can be
found here - Weather seems to be 2-3 months off cycle
, so I thought I'd give everyone
an update since there seems to be quite a bit of interest in this topic (thanks to everyone who participated and provided information in the previous
After some incredibly warm weather here in the Northeasternern part of the US during the early and middle parts of March (highs reached 70's and
localized 80's in some areas), things seem to be cooling down over the last week to more seasonal temperatures. With that said, the old adage, the
month of March "comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb", certainly didn't apply this year.
Needless to say, this has continued to wreak havoc on the local ecosystem for both man and nature alike not knowing what's up or down. Trees and
flowers blooming early, bees dazedly buzzing around in a comatose fashion after being repeatedly awakened from their winter slumber and people
uncertain about what's going to happen from one day to the next. Similarly to the beginning of the year, the weather for March proved to remain
unpredictable, mostly unseasonal and in some cases, extremely chaotic and devastating (thoughts and prayers go out to those affected worldwide by the
unusual cycle of tornadoes and other disastrous weather events).
In the interest of keeping each other informed and aware of what's going on outside our own little parts of the world, I thought I'd provide an
update on what I've been experiencing and see if some/most of us are still seeing similar weather patterns. I'll try to compile a summary in a week
or so, depending on how many respond and what specifics you provide, but for the New York City area (New York, NY), these are the average temperatures
for the past week, info compiled via data extrapolated from the Weather Almanac and History section located at
reflecting actual temperatures
versus the mean average historical temps
specified date (high/low/mean):
03.26.2012 - Actual 54/34/44F and Mean average 53/38/46F
03.27.2012 - Actual 51/30/41F and Mean average 54/38/46F
03.28.2012 - Actual 67/44/56F and Mean average 54/39/46F
03.29.2012 - Actual 61/43/52F and Mean average 54/39/47F
03.30.2012 - Actual 57/40/49F and Mean average 55/39/47F
03.31.2012 - Actual 43/38/41F and Mean average 55/40/48F
Again, this is a return to somewhat seasonal temps after an unusually warm beginning and middle of the month.
Will the weather continue to equalize or are we in for an extremely hot (or cold) summer as some have hypothesized? What do you think, ATS?
Let me know what the weather has been like during March in your part of the globe and if we can compile enough data on a monthly basis, I'll post a
monthly comparison in both Fahrenheit and Celcius (and an End of the Year Summary/Comparison if there is enough input and interest). Cheers!
