Yesterday was cool and today will be slightly warmer, but this weekend will yet again bring us cold and damp conditions
It is hard to believe that March is coming to an end already. The days are just flying by faster and faster. If you have any plans for outside festivities this weekend, I would suggest bringing a coat and an umbrella because it will be cold and dreary for the majority of Saturday and Sunday. This morning was yet again freezing with temperatures in the mid 30s. As the afternoon rolls around, partly cloudy skies will allow it to feel pleasantly comfortable with temperatures rising into the mid- to upper-50s. Clouds will start to increase by the late afternoon rush hour as a disturbance from the west creeps in. Rain is not expected to arrive until around midnight, if not later. Temperatures will fall into the low 40s with a southeasternly …

This day only comes once every four years - and it will be a wet and messy one.
As an undergraduate attending Penn State University, an extra day of classes from the Leap Year of 2012 is a little bit disappointing. To make things worse I can now expect dark, gloomy and wet weather for the entire day into tomorrow. Depending on your location, some wintry precipitation may be possible in the early morning. The more north you are, for example in Lehigh Valley, some sleet and freezing rain could start around the morning commute. Rain will quickly take over and may be heavy at times during the afternoon. The high temperatures will be a bit cooler than the previous days in the lower 40s. The winds will stay relatively calm blowing from the east-southeast. Tonight will be cool and calm with some lingering showers. The …

Coach Jim Algeo was honored by the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners on Wednesday with a resolution recognizing his "44 years of dedicated service to the students of Lansdale Catholic High School." Algeo retired in November after a 53-year coaching career, the last 44 of them at Lansdale Catholic. Asked by Commissioner James Matthews what he had learned from his student players over the years, Algeo spoke of his 1971 Lansdale Catholic team, which he said had started the season with three consecutive losses but returned to practice each succeeding Monday more determined to win than before. "You can always work harder to make yourself better," Algeo said. The full text of the Commissioners' resolution follows. WHEREAS…
