Communities Yet another chilly spring on tap for the Northwest? Yet another chilly spring on tap for the Northwest?
It seems like a broken record:

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2008.(Coldest start to June on record)

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2010. (2nd-longest wait for first 75 degree day of year)

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2011. (Coldest April on record, 2nd wettest March-April)

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2012. (3rd wettest March on record)

If long range forecasts are to be believed, tune in next year when I add a line for 2013.
