  1. It was a chilly April here in the SE also. We had a day similar to X’mas here in mid April with 55F all day.

    • Thanks!!!! Really appreciate the info. SE where? Florida. Mexico. Australia. Well, who cares. Great info. So glad that it was “chilly” and not cold, or hot, or stormy, etc.

  2. Trans Canada Hwy issued snowfall warning. May 3, 2020
    Travellers looking to head east today should be aware of some fairly dangerous weather about to hit the Trans Canada Hwy.
    According to Environment Canada, 5 to 10 cm of snow is expected to fall between the Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass this afternoon. In to addition Hwy 1, Hwy 3 is receiving a dump between the Paulson Summit and Kootenay Pass.
    “A vigorous cold front over southeastern BC will move out of the province this morning,” wrote Environment Canada. “Snow has already begun at Kootenay Pass and will begin at Rogers Pass early this morning.”
    “This afternoon, an unstable airmass will bring a chance of occasionally heavy flurries and a risk of thunderstorms. The flurries will be highly localized but could result in poor visibility and rapidly accumulating snow.”

  3. 11 days from now models predict snow in Wisconsin. If that happens, I promise you it’s very late. Mid May.

  4. Also of note it’s been cold there the past 5 springs or so. Record snowstorms every spring. Smashing records, including this year.
