We're learning a lot about weather this year, not that we really wanted to. Our next lesson about weather phenomenon that may be messing up our spring is something called the Omega Block.

The Omega Block, named that because it's shape resembles the Greek letter Omega, is a weather pattern that brings prolonged rainy, cool weather to areas below it, according to accuweather.com, and guess who is expected to be below it next week?

This traffic pattern could affect a wide area next week, from Chicago to our area, and it could mean the end of the sunny warmer weather we have been teased with recently. An accuweather.com meteorologist reminds us that in the past, this type of weather pattern has brought some wet snow in May.

Thanks for that.
