Sun, sun, and more sun! March hasn't put up much resistance to this onslaught of Spring. Above average max temperatures and cloudless days have maximized the early March snow melt. The only thing helping the snow stay around is the overnight min temps which have been dipping into the teens most of the past week. In all aspects, March has come into Oshkosh like a lamb. Current forecast models are predicting a similar pattern with some precipitation this week. Further out they hint at cooler temperatures and a possible bout with some frozen precip. If March comes in like a lamb, will it go out like a lion?

Oshkosh Stormwater Management
The good folks over at Main Street Oshkosh just so happened to provide me with my first opportunity to share some Oshkosh climate data with others who may actually need it. After reading this and then this, it was obvious to me that I needed to get some numbers together. I was quite amazed at the results.

Front Of House
A seasonal flip of the switch has proven once again that the south facing homes lose their front yard snow much quicker than the north facing homes on my block of Congress Ave.
