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.

Offering a selection of flags and other patriotic merchandise, Millie Musha waits for customers outside Bob's Christmasland in Kensington. Yesterday was perfect weather for selling wares outside. Today could be cloudy and wet, but the warmth will hang around.

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.

The weather forecast for the Union's 7 p.m. Major League Soccer home game on Friday night against Orlando City SC calls for it to be frigid, and Union coach Jim Curtin couldn't be happier. Orlando City (2-0-2) and Real Salt Lake (2-0-2) are the only unbeaten teams in MLS. Since Orlando City is used to playing in warm weather, Curtin couldn't contain his glee about the forecast. Weather.com states that the temperature in Chester's Talen Energy Stadium Friday night is expected to be 36 degrees with a 20 percent chance of precipitation.

While admitting no missteps in its storm planning, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission on Tuesday pledged to improve its weather-forecasting capacity after coming under fire for its response to a January blizzard that stranded hundreds of motorists for 24 hours. The recommendation came in a 30-page "After Action Report" that summarized what commission officials had billed as its comprehensive, 10-week internal review of how it handled the storm. But the report did little to pinpoint any failures of internal planning.

During the weeks before our grandson Zay's December bar mitzvah six years ago, I was preoccupied with several things. I blush to admit one of them was whether the tapestry jacket I'd selected would work well for the Saturday service and luncheon. I worried about the endless details that go into planning these milestones. The one thing I didn't think about much was the weather. This was the Philadelphia area, after all, and it doesn't snow much in Philadelphia in December.

ISSUE | TURNPIKE SNARL Paying for forecasts? Last month's traffic boondoggle on a western stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike is one more example of the lack of consequences for poor performance by government workers ("Turnpike: Blizzard had flawed forecast," Feb. 17). At legislative hearings, turnpike officials were answering the same questions that legislators asked two years ago, when an eastern stretch near Willow Grove was closed for eight hours. Nothing has changed, and I would bet that no one even gets a reprimand.

As we relearn every morning from TV weather forecasts, predictions are worth very little. Especially more than 12 hours in advance. So it is with real estate, especially when the source is the housing industry itself. Yet from my experience writing about residential real estate for 27 years for this newspaper, it seems to me that what the National Association of Realtors' chief economist, Lawrence Yun, has predicted about 2016 may not be far from wrong. In mid-January, Yun forecast a modest increase in sales of previously owned homes in 2016 - 1 percent to 2 percent, not percentage points - as well as higher median prices of 5 percent to 6 percent and fixed 30-year mortgage rates topping out at 4.3 percent by year's end. This, by the way, is not the full recovery that economists in 2010 had been predicting by 2015.
