The Lakeland is still covered in snow and heaters remain turned up through this particularly chilly first half of March, but tomorrow should mark a turning point.
After a prolonged cold snap that saw temperatures regularly plunge below minus twenty all month long, Tuesday should see a high of plus three, the first time the temperatures has gotten above zero in ten days. Better yet, it won’t be a one-off this time either. Highs between zero and five are projected all the way into the end of the weekend with the overnight lows never dipping below minus nine.
While snowfall later in the month and into April is still entirely possible, Tuesday should mark the beginning of when we have more warm days than cold. It won’t be an entirely smooth transition though. Day temperatures above zero and night temperatures below mean a lot of snow and ice is going to be melting and freezing again. Make sure to be extra cautious while driving and walking outside.
