    Have you seen any long range forecasts for this spring?. Next week they're calling for rain 4 of 5 days.

    I hope to h - - - its not going to be another non-stop rain season like '03.

    Long range forcast for me is looking out the window and seeing what is going on. Spring time is so unpredictable that the only thing I count on is that eventually it gets light and dark but in differing shades.

    how true....the weather people have jmore computers and software than ever before and they still cant predict whats going to happen even in the same day.

    Mow Ed...George Carlin used to have a saying similar to yours...
    " Today will be light followed by mostly dark this evening"...at least thats one forecast we can count on

    Okay guys, don't jack me up over this.

    The Northern Oscillation over the Atlantic Ocean is headed into it's third year and weakening. The oscillation has a typical cycle of 3 years. It is this oscillation that was responsible for the non-stop rainfall from October 2003 until recently. This spring and summer should be what a person would consider normal.

    Gary, your 3 days of rain is typical for March/April at this time of year. Don't sweat it.

    About the only thing I check is the weather.com forecast at night for the following morning. Even then it is wrong alot.
