Retailers gain as consumers celebrate spring mood

February 2008 Ended With Strong Regional Differences. Ol Man Winter Hung On In The East While Spring Fever Gripped the West.

Weekend Review (1-2 March 2008): A quick moving Alberta clipper moved off the East Coast into Eastern Canada on Saturday but not before putting down a swath of snow across parts of the Upper Midwest into New England. Scattered rains in the Southeast gave way to dry weather.

Pleasant, although windy, weather followed. Much warmer temperatures exited out of the Plains and were prevalent across the Southeast and Midwest with many locations seeing high temperatures into the 50s and 60s (70s south). Early spring demand was likely robust. Warmer temperatures reached the East Coast on Sunday.

Out West, however, another Pacific storm moved onshore early in the weekend dumping more rains in the Pacific Northwest and snow in the Rockies. This disturbance moved quickly eastward into the Plains by late weekend, but not before providing a combination of rain, snow, and ice from New Mexico to western Nebraska and severe weather ahead of storm in Oklahoma and Texas. Southern California remained dry and pleasantly warm.

Last Week (week-ending 03/01/2008): An early week storm moved out of the Rockies into the Plains gathering strength as it moved east. From Tuesday into Wednesday, while heavy (much-needed) rains fell across the South and up the East Coast, wintry weather occurred in the same areas plagued much of the winter.

An average of 4 to 8 inches of new snow fell from Missouri through the Upper Midwest and on into the St. Lawrence Valley and interior Northeast. A strong winter blast followed the storm from west to east across eastern U.S. and Canada with below normal temperatures and dangerous wind chills. Meanwhile, the West experienced a touch of Spring with strong warming and dry weather during the week.
