On Friday the Twin Cities were warmer than Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Washington D.C. It's like the weather calendar completely skipped over the month of March and went directly to April!
A full blown thawing of the trails is underway as mild air (that's a good 20F above normal) remains through midweek. Temperatures return closer to normal (30s) by early March.
The three-month seasonal outlook for March through May was released this week. Warmer than normal conditions could continue for the majority of the country. The Northern Rockies, Northern High Plains, and Upper Midwest could receive slightly above normal precipitation. Minnesota may see a mild, wet start to spring.
Cycling & Air Pollution
The study did find, however, that "western cities such as London, Paris or New York would never reach the point where PM2.5 air pollution’s negatives outweigh exercise’s positives in the long term." Let's hope it stays that way.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
