"I believe together we'll fly."
- Nikki Yanofsky, "I Believe" Theme song for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games

9:45 PM WEDNESDAY 2.17.2010  Special thanks to our enthusiastic and loyal readers for staying with us during this action-packed and historic time. Much work lies ahead, but due to the dedication of the Forecast Team and all our contributers on facebook, by email and in the comments, I believe together we'll fly.

SO WHEN THE SNOWSTORMS LEAVE...  That will be a wonderful thing for all of us, once we get past the March mud madness of course. For the team, efforts will focus back on daily forecasts and updates in each zone, as well as preparing for severe weather and hurricane season. As spring approaches, the winter-focused Student Climate Collaborative will soon be replaced by an environmental effort as explained next:

THE WATERSHED COLLABORATIVE This will feature the on-going partnerships between several PA and MD teachers and their students as participants within the Baltimore Ecosystem Study. The BES is one of two  urban ecology research sites within the Long Term Ecological Research network funded by the National Science Foundation. The Watershed Collaborative page will be our portal for highlighting the curricular-relevant learning of K-12 students in the areas of water, carbon and biodiversity. By being a reader, contributor or forecaster on this site, your awareness alone of BES goals and the extensive work by its researchers can support the efforts of many to further environmental science literacy for all students.

FOR LATEST UPDATES Monitor the zone specific to your area. Updates occur in the early morning, late afternoon and evening. Though many of your forecasters are back in class, more are stationed across the region and on college campuses, at the ready to always provide you with fresh, spot-on forecasts every day of the year.

Keep the hope alive for Spring, it is still on the way. Even the deer have started to make their way around!
