After two weeks of life being interrupted by wintry weather, it seems odd and maybe a little refreshing to start thinking about spring weather. Spring brings more than just warmer temperatures and budding trees and flowers. It brings the start of our peak tornado season.
Technically, March 1, is the beginning of meteorological spring and the perfect time to remind everyone how dangerous spring weather can be. So, Governor Pat McCrory declared this week Severe Weather Preparedness Week in North Carolina. The National Weather Service office in Raleigh has devoted a special page on its website to the week, and a statewide tornado drill is set for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 4th.
All NOAA weather radios should receive a broadcast test message unless there is actually severe weather occurring at that time. At this point, the forecast for Wednesday is for warmer temperatures and a chance for rain in the morning, but no severe storms are expected.

The unusual cold will likely continue for the Triangle and the rest of North Carolina for at least another two weeks.

When it comes to predicting an early spring, sometimes the chances for getting it right come down to a toss-up.
