Captain's Log 30 MAR '20 Ready to MOW? Ready for La Nina?

We hope and pray that you and family are doing well. Today we review the last conronavirus event back in 2003, SARS, when it peaked in middle April and then collapsed through Spring...let's hope COVID19 reacts the same. World March temperatures trends vs last year show the U.S. was the bigger winner with much warmer YOY temperature trends with the 3rd warmest March in 35 years for the U.S. overall, greatest YOY change toward warmer weather since 2012. Snowfall was also 3rd least in 35 years but wettest in 4 years, 8th wettest in 35 years. This week (30 Mar - 5 Apr) was showing sings that we might get a glancing shot of the Polar Vortex but models flip flopped for a week now so it doesn't appear to be anywhere near as cold as projected. The week still looks to trend 2.2F warmer than last year, warmest in 3 years and 16th warmest in 35 years. Rainfall is on the drier side trending driest in 5 years, 9th least in 35 years but snowfall (mainly NW and Plains) up vs LY and 10th most in 35 years. When soil temperatures go above 50F, things like grass start to grow and we're seeing that now from Central Illinois to New Jersey. 14-day soil temperature and moisture forecasts are available around the world with wt360.com tools. As you'll see in today's video...the fish begin eating too so we fed the hungry fish this weekend. :) Back to the weather...a weak system will bring some light snow to the NW and Plains so no mowing there just yet. Next week (6-12 Apr) shows the same general trends of warm East, cool West. Nationally temps look to trend 0.6F warmer than a year ago and 3rd warmest of the past 35 years with much above average national temperatures. Rainfall the wettest in 7 years and 3rd wettest in 35 years with some risk for severe weather from TX to the Ohio Valley. Snowfall the most in 7 years and 4th most in 35 years for the higher elevations of the West. Clear signs we're headed for a La Nina pattern for the next 1 to 1.5 years looking at the Pacific Ocean temperatures. Models still showing a weak La Nina event by early Summer and then moderate maybe strong by Fall. This is a dry cycle but of course the atmosphere can take weeks or a couple months to fully respond. If you like celestial events, you're in luck this week as Venus goes right through the Pleiades Friday evening. The Pleiades kind of look like the little dipper only much smaller. The little Angelina Kirk will be out for sure as she LOVES the stars and planets which plaster the ceiling in her basement "castle". With millions of us getting used to working from home, not easy for those of us who enjoy being around people, the benefit is more family time together. The sunny warm days are certainly better for everyone's moral and good to soak up natural Vitamin D, thankfully we had some of that here in Eastern PA. The little "Captain Angelina Kirk' is certainly enjoying more time with Daddy. :) We hope and pray your families are growing closer together too! Have a great week!

Captain's Log 23 Mar '20 Warm, Wet then Dry - FLU RISK SOUTH!

Good morning. We pray everyone is well and getting used to our new temporary way of life working remotely all around the world. Today we review the U.S. 2-week outlook which shows a continued warmer, wetter pattern but drying out as we transition into next week. Snow remains much below average. March around the world shows the U.S. has been much warmer than last year while Australia, entering Fall, looks to have the coldest/wettest conditions in 8 years - a risky pattern that typically leads to an early onset of typical Type A-B Flu...combined with Coronavirus we're worried about our friends down under. Very proud of the weathertrends360 team who passed out $2,500 worth of Giant food gift cards to the elderly, needed, recently laid off and churches. Proud of you and more to come...super heroes come in all shapes and sizes! :) Have a great week, stay safe and healthy!
