Spring is right around the corner and many people can't wait until it arrives. March 20th is the date of the Vernal Equinox and 7:02 A.M. EDT is the time it rolls in.
Responses vary to the question "what are you looking forward to the most with spring just a few days away?"
Many are looking forward to birthdays, gardening, new beginnings, enjoying the warmer weather (on two wheels or four) and enjoying the flowers. While others look forward to cooking out, house cleaning, long walks, longer days and not having to wear a jacket.
With all that said, there are some who are still hoping for a spring blizzard and that is not out of the question especially in the month of March!
Remember, if you are a fan of spring and you don't want it to be a fling then keep it with you all year long even in the cold when you aren't feeling strong. Spring is almost here and that is what the winter lovers fear. I am hoping that next winter will be the snow lovers year!

A potent area of low pressure will move along this rim and drop down the front side bringing a round of severe weather to Maryland Wednesday evening/night through Thursday afternoon (timing is still in question).
As the moisture from this tropical low moves north it will interact with a trough out to the west. This will increase Maryland's rain chances late Thursday into early Saturday morning.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service and researchers from the University of Oklahoma continue to investigate the May 31st El Reno tornado that hit just west of Oklahoma City.
