A slowly changing pattern

Good Tuesday to one and all. Our much warmer-than-normal weather pattern is about to slowly give way to a more typical March pattern this week. As a matter of fact, this pattern might take on a bit of a winter look at times.

True spring is still a few weeks away. Until then, let’s enjoy the weather we have out there now. Take care.
