For those of you who are interested in the long range winter forecast, don't forget to tune in on Thursday for a big announcement from on the most popular and well known rodents across the globe. Punxsutawney Phill will have a prediction at 7:20AM EST from Gobler's Knob and decide whether or not to take another 6 week nap. The forecast for Punxsutawney, PA calls for cloudier skies early Thursday and as legend has it, if he doesn't see his shadow, it'll be an early spring.
Regardless of what Phil says on Thursday, it's going to feel more like March as temperatures bump up close to 40 degrees today and tomorrow. With temperatures as warm as they'll be, I see no problem with us getting into a top 10 spot for one of the warmest January's in recorded history. March-uary comes to an end on Tuesday with the potential for a little light rain/snow mix, how fitting.
