Where's Spring?

It's been a long, hard winter and even though spring arrives at 12:57 this afternoon, the weather is wet and unseasonably cold.

Meteorologist John Hitchcock from the National Weather Service in Buffalo says it will remain that way for another week or so. And then, there's good news. “Instead of this very cold northwest flow coming out of Canada, it’ll be replaced by a more westerly flow of warmer Pacific air. We think that will begin to arrive in the Rochester area by next weekend.”

Hitchcock reminds us that the weather this time of year can vary widely. Two years ago in March, we saw highs around 80. 

And we have seen snowstorms as late as May.
