Is Zeus the Caboose?

CPC OutlookFor those blissfully unaware of such things, The Weather Channel (TWC) started naming winter storms last year; their 26th named storm of the season is called Zeus. Residents of the snow- and cold-plagued northern Rockies and upper Midwest hope that Zeus is indeed the caboose of their seemingly endless 2012-13 winter season.

The forecast (and the calendar) offer hope, as Friday’s forecast high in Denver is 63 with upper 60s and lower 70s possible on the weekend, according to TWC. And today’s Climate Prediction Center one- to two-week forecast calls for above normal temps (orange shading) and average precipitation. It might not be time for sunblock, but it should be time to put away the snowblowers.
