50s Next Friday…..60s (70 South) Near March 12March 1st, 2013 at 12:45 am by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
It still looks like a surge of spring is coming soon. Though it still looks raw to March 8, warmer weather will arrive next Friday with highs in the 50s & eventually 60s to even 70 will move in.
I can already hear the American robins, mourning doves, red-winged blackbirds, song sparrows, eastern meadowlarks, cardinals, western chorus frogs & spring peepers………..with the aroma of fresh soil in the air………ahhhhhh some spring.
Nothing is better than hearing distant thunder & listening to the red-winged blackbirds, robins & spring peepers on a warm spring evening. Brings back so many memories as a kid. However, I would have to say my favorite kind of weather is distant lightning at night with the corn rustling with stifling 80s with dew points in the mid 70s with the crickets, katydids & all of that night-time insect fauna in loud song. I like the distant sounds of whip-poor-wills & chuck-wills-widows in the woods.
