    In NYC it's supposed to hit 70 degrees for the first time all year. This is one of the top 10 longest times it's taken to crack 70. The record being in 1973 where it took until April 30 to crack 70 for the first time.

    It won't last long. :(

    By Sunday, temps plunge into the 50s and Monday and Tuesday, it'll be cold and rainy, probably won't get out of the 40s. :evil:

    That's whats forecasted for us too (I live in NE PA). I like rainy weather but only when it's countered with bouts of nice weather. So yesterday, today, tomorrow and I think Sunday will be lots of dog walks. And yard work (while the enthusiasm lasts. ;))

    Not my left coast - we are stuck in the low 50s with rain and a cold front for the next 24 hours followed by marginal warming.

    The Tulip festival had to be pushed back because no blooms yet - a local farmer was quoted as saying that has been the issue for the last few years - colder temperatures and increased rain.

    I think this is the fifth year in a row the Tulip Festival has been delayed here. One year it almost didn't happen at all. We got sun today, but for how long, yesterday started off sunny then out of nowhere rain and cold again.
