Where’s Spring?

Our north-Atlantic blocking high is still at it, causing storms to stall over eastern North America and funneling cold air down into the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.  The chart below shows the temperatures and winds at 850 mb (~5,000 ft up), and while much of the west and south has a warm signal, we remained under winter’s lingering firm grip.  The forecast chart is valid for Tuesday morning; hard freezes are likely Tuesday and Wednesday. Ugh….

The 24-hour forecast chart from the GFS (via Univ of Wisconsin) valid Tuesday morning.  Shaded colrs are temperature, arrows are wind vectors,and the solid lines are best thought of as pressure (although they are actual "height" contours).
