What a difference a day makes: same park, same spot. The weather Sunday afternoon was so mild that Debby and Tom Parks of Cherry Hill were horseback riding in Cooper River Park and felt "spring fever. " The night's snow brought Rick and Diane Powell to the same spot on skis yesterday.

Nobody shoveling out from under a snowdrift wants to hear it, of course. Nobody who has to bundle up against negative wind-chill factors is going to have much sympathy for the big leaguers going through their paces in ballparks ringed by palm trees. Fact is, though, that by Florida-in-March standards the spring training weather this year has been lousy. The Phillies already have had one game canceled and two others shortened by rain. Workouts have been curtailed and washed out by other downpours.

Erwin Graves addressed the ball - feet shoulder-width apart, head down, arms straight as his fingers snaked around the handle of his No. 1 wood. Then he drew back and unleashed yet another wayward slice that disappeared into the brilliance of yesterday's afternoon sun. Graves, 37, of Kensington, just started playing golf about three months ago and he has "been loving it. " He figured he would have already packed up his clubs for the winter by now. But yesterday he was one of about a half-dozen hackers taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to get in a few more practice strokes at Longknockers Driving Range in North Philadelphia.

Atlantis makes some of the most feature-packed lightweight weather gear around. More protective than rain gear, the outerwear has reinforced seams and closures designed for the likes of boaters in rough seas. My favorite among a wide range of jackets is the newly redesigned Microburst jacket (in "high risk red. ") Made of a soft featherweight nylon blend, the hip-length jacket has long, spacious zippered pockets running the length of both sides of the chest, with internal netting for ventilation, as well as long "pit zips" under each arm. Elasticized cuffs have Velcro closures, and a built-in rain hood rolls and stashes behind the insulated collar.

RE BYKO'S column on weathercasts: Gosh, Stu, isn't it important that your weather doll warn you "be sure to bundle up" since temperatures will drop to 3-below with a wind chill of minus 40. Without such sage advice, you might have gone outdoors in your Speedos. New York's WCBS radio offers "pinpoint weather. " Some folks may really be interested in temperatures at 79th and Madison as well as those at 33rd and 6th. The five-day forecast is a guess. So is the seven-day forecast here in Florida.

By Ellen Scolnic and Joyce Eisenberg Twenty-three inches of snow ago, we were feeling pretty smug. We were proud that we didn't waste money on a January vacation to the Riviera Maya like some of our friends did. We were glad we didn't prepay for discount lift tickets at Jack Frost, whose ski trails were bare. We wondered whether anyone was buying the marked-down mittens and scarves at the post-Christmas sale when it was 70 degrees outside. We felt bad for the kids who wouldn't have a snow day and the TV weather anchors who had to fake enthusiasm for a seven-day forecast of nothing but mid-40s temperatures and gray skies.

The snow had just started to fall when Ari Hoenig took the stage at Chris' Jazz Café on Friday night, paying respect to the "brave ones" who turned out in spite of the dreary weather. The roads were already slicker and more treacherous by the time his quartet wrapped up its first set an hour later, making the prospect of the drive back to New York late that night a daunting one. Any worry about the perilous trek ahead failed to turn up in their music, however. While the crowd was understandably smaller than what's usual for the Philly native's homecoming performances, Hoenig and company played a typically enthusiastic and boisterous set. The material was largely drawn from their just-released CD, The Pauper & The Magician , loosely conceived as the soundtrack for the improvised bedtime stories Hoenig tells his two daughters.

As advertised, the Blizzard of 2016 was a crippler. But it was the forecasts, themselves, that put the region into shutdown mode and turned Saturday into a snow day long before the first flake was sighted. Those often-squabbling and maligned computer weather models - blamed for legendary snow busts - had a blockbuster week, seeing the possibility of this East Coast megastorm a full seven days ago. The models were consistent, "run after run, day after day," Daniel Petersen, meteorologist with the government's Weather Prediction Center, said Saturday.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Editor's note: Both shows at the Tower this weekend have been canceled due to weather.) Is Macklemore over? With The Heist in 2012, the Seattle rapper and his producer-DJ partner Ryan Lewis were perfectly in step with the zeitgeist on the strapped-for-cash "Thrift Shop" and LGBT-friendly "Same Love," leading to a best rap album win at the 2014 Grammys. Things haven't gone so smoothly since, however. The rapper born Ben Haggerty took heat for wearing a costume at a 2014 concert that was perceived as anti-Semitic, and neither his single "Downtown," which came out in September and features guest spots from old-school rap legends like Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Caz, nor his new "Kevin," about prescription-drug addiction, have caught fire.

With a confidence rare so far in advance of a storm, meteorologists are warning that 1 to 2 feet of snow could bury Philadelphia and the rest of the I-95 corridor from Washington to New York City. The powerful snow-producing coastal storm also is expected to rip sand off the Jersey beaches, and could set off major flooding, the National Weather Service in Mount Holly said Tuesday morning. Computer models, including the U.S. and the vaunted European, have consistently foreseen heavy snows for the region.

Kristin Kennedy needed to get her younger sister, Rebecca, out of the house while others prepared for a surprise 16th birthday party. The plan: ice skating at Cooper River Park in Pennsauken. But holy Mercury! Sunday was not like most January days. The temperature hit 65 degrees in the early afternoon in Philadelphia, breaking the record of 63 degrees set in 1950. Throw in the heavy rains from the night before, and the rink in South Jersey was unable to open Sunday afternoon.
