The Gaughan Gauge say's it all, make it an "8" and then a "9" this weekend!
The polar vortex has diminished as the day's continue to get longer allowing the Sun to warm the arctic and polar regions in Canada. This is allowing for above freezing temperatures to start melting all the ice in the Great Lakes. This will in turn potentially set the stage for some massive flooding (from melting snow and ice jams along the major rivers in the mid-west).
But, I digress.
Breakout the sunscreen! And have a great weekend!
