Seattle finished up February as the warmest on record, on the heels of a very warm January (and record-warm December) as well, and the early spring-time weather has in tandem brought out the first signs of spring.

They say March comes "in like a lion" and out like a lamb, but if that has to be the case, this year it's certainly not a ferocious lion but more the cute, cuddly Simba just after he was born in "The Lion King."
Actually, that still might not be tame enough. Have the lambs won already?
High pressure is firmly in control and that has in its wrath managed to wipe out all the raindrops off the extended forecast.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be quite similar to today -- mostly sunny with highs in the low-mid 50s and lows in the mid 30s.
A few clouds sneak in for Thursday and Friday as a weak system heads into B.C. -- just enough to drop us down to partly sunny status Thursday and Friday but really no worries. Maybe it'll give a bit more awesome sky texture to the sunrise and sunsets. Highs will remain in the low-mid 50s.
We clear out and warm up again next weekend which is back to mostly sunny status both Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 50s -- maybe a few low 60s out there. This keeps up and this sunny, 2 month period of February-March is going to put some of our past summers to shame in the sunny weekend category.
But one thing's for sure this early March: It's certainly not the Silence of the Lambs but the Might Roar of the Lambs :)
