It's been awhile since you've seen some warmer temperatures if you live east of the Mississippi River. And on the other side of the river, it's been awhile since you've gotten a break from any kind of heat.
But this week, everyone across the country was feeling a little warmer. It was a welcome taste of Spring.
Now it's all coming to an end.
Long-term forecast models are showing a return to the same old pattern of warmer temperatures in the West and cooler temperatures in the East through the first day of Spring...
...and even a few days after.
Before anyone begins cowering in a corner covered in electric blankets or packing their bags for some island along the Equator, it looks like the Spring-like warmth may return in that first week of April, in time for baseball’s Opening Day — except for the Northeast.
The upside is cooler than usual in early April is still warmer than cooler than usual in late February or early March.
