Sunny sky isn't winter's end!

It's been a long and hard winter, as we are coming down to the last week of February, then March, Spring should be just around the corner now, right? Well, not so fast! The mlive.com this morning has an interesting artucle by Stephen Kloosterman that saying "Sunny sky this morning isn't winter's end":

MUSKEGON, MI – Take a peak outside – you won’t be disappointed.
You may have forgotten over the past winter months but the glowing orange thing is our sun. Don’t look at it too long.
Unfortunately,Saturday’s sunny morning is not forecast to be the end of the winter weather and the dangerous driving associated with it.
The Michigan State Police warn that roadways in the Muskegon County area are still wet and icy.
Temperatures Saturday, Feb. 22 are expected to top out at 30 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. A west-southwest wind will blow 18 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 29 mph.
Saturday night, skies will be partly cloudy, with a low temperature near 16 degrees. The wind will continue to blow, but without gusts.
On Sunday, skies will again be partly sunny, with a high temperature near 23 degrees, according to the weather service forecast. A west wind will blow 18 to 21 mph, with gusts up to 31 mph.
Starting Sunday night, there is a 40 percent chance of snow showers after 8 p.m. A west-northwest wind will blow 20-22 mph, with gusts again up to 30 mph.
There is a chance of snow every day from Monday through Wednesday next week, according to the National Weather Service.
Ugh! Winter sticks around a little longer yet! 

Can't wait for the daffodils in our front yard to blooming!
