I was only guessing as to what might have happened, but usually winds blowing from the north are colder than those blowing from the south/west. If the prevailing winds shifted from one to the other, it'll explain the rise in temperature.

It could also be complete bollocks, I'm not a meteorologist

Lovely here at lunchtime in central PA, though it was chilly and damp this morning. No snow since yesterday......

Supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow and Saturday before cooling down a bit again next week.

Sounds like the nice weather we had is moving east then. It nudged 70 yesterday and now it's sitting at 45. Soccer starts up tonight, going to be a cold one I think.

15F

Gusting to 43 mph

Snow in the air but not a lot.

Even the dog is not impressed.

Today has been mid 60's, but humid. Thunderstorms overnight, which is is to be expected!

It's quite pleasant today, but quite cloudy. Supposed to have been the start of the free, kids flights but didn't bother in the end.

It's looking to be utterly shit weather during the Boston Marathon...have quite a few friends running it this year. Shant bother go watch them fun

It snowed over night. The ground was white. It's now a mix of snow and rain. It is a horrid, freezing, driving rain in Boston. Lovely day for a marathon

This is some bullshit, isn't it? April snow is one thing, but for it to be cold enough either side of the event for it to stick is just adding insult to injury.

Yeah, here too, kind of lazily and small flakes. Supposed to be done today and then some sun tomorrow, which will help I suppose. At least the DOTs around my way decided to use a bunch of their salt because the roads were actually pretty good from the get go.

We have friends who have helped out with the (extensive) set-ups & preparation for the Boston Marathon. They used to run in it years ago. Bet they're glad they're not running it this time, as even the setting-up must be a miserable job.

Why can't the organizers postpone it till next weekend if there's snow or ice on the course??
