Spring 2010 might last less than a week

Apr 6, 2010 12:05:00 PM - thestate.com
If spring arrives in Columbia when there are back-to-back 80-degree days, and if summer begins with back-to-back 90-degree days, then spring 2010 might last less than a week.

After a high of 91 on Monday, the forecast high for Columbia today is 90. If the thermometer hits 90, it would mark the third earliest consecutive 90-degree days in Columbia history. The only earlier back-to-back 90s were in 1929 (March 24-25) and 1907 (March 28-29), according to the Southeast Regional Climate Center.

This early heat blast comes after cool temperatures lingered later in the calendar than normal. Columbia?s first back-to-back 80-degree days this year were March 31 and April 1.

So the truly spring-like weather seems to have lasted less than a week. But maybe it?s too early to declare spring over. A cold front coming through Thursday will drop daytime highs into the 70s for a couple of days, according to the National Weather Service.
