    March: Came in Like a Polar Bear; Goes Out Bearable

    Tuesday 9 a.m.

    At the beginning of the month, I claimed March was not coming in like a lion, but like a polar bear. It has been chilly much of the month in the Great Lakes and Northeast. Now as we approach the end of the month, it will become milder. Temperatures Saturday are likely to clear the 50-degree hurdle from Chicago to New York City. Can we say March will go out like as lamb? Maybe we can characterize it as bearable. This video shows how the weather should unfold today through early next week.

    Although it will be milder in the Northeast for the Easter weekend, cold air should return early next week. The U.S. and European models suggest the return of cold. The Euro model is slower bringing the cold air in, but as these maps show, both models predict cold air will return.
