Once again another month in the books with above normal temperatures. March 2017 has been the 19 consecutive month with a monthly average temperature above normal. The warm trend might continue into spring.
The long range outlook into early April favors above normal temperatures and just slightly above normal precipitation. Meanwhile rain (not snow) returns Sunday and Wednesday.
Early April outlook
Trails are in full-blown thaw mode right now. Even the River Bottoms Trail is too wet, too muddy to ride. Frost is officially out of the ground in many locations so we are well on our way to riding dirt when it dries out. So pavement miles are where it's at right now.
A quarter of an inch of rain may fall Sunday with another round of (lighter) precipitation around the middle of next week.
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.
