Pat Shingleton: "16 Years and lots of Columns"
With daytime highs in the 70s and overnight lows in the 60s, we'll stay slightly above average for the final days of Winter and the start of Spring. Springtime begins at 5:45 PM Friday whereby the most direct rays of the Sun start their trek north of the Equator. This Friday, bird watchers in South Louisiana will notice the exit of the robins while elsewhere the buzzards arrive in Hinckley, Ohio and the swallows head to Capistrano. Finally, on a personal note, after providing "my take" on "Weather News" in 5,531 columns, a different approach has been recommended; geared more toward weather and less news. My colleague, Josh Eachus now has the assignment. Thanks to you, the readers, and the folks at The Advocate for these last 16 years. "Pat Shingleton's Weather News" will appear be right here on WBRZ.com and possibly other platforms.
