We made it through winter! Tomorrow is the first day spring. Now you are probably looking at your calendar and saying to yourself… “Ummm, spring starts on March 20.” Yes, the vernal equinox is March 20, which is when we have 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. However, every meteorologist starts spring on the first day of March. To us, the season of spring is March, April and May. This is when we start to see the biggest change in our temperatures. With our winter season being very mild, you can probably guess where spring is headed. According to the Climate Prediction Center, the next three months…aka spring, are going to be above average, especially when it comes to temperatures. The average temperature for March is 46.2°F, April is 60.1°F and May is 71.1°F. When it comes to precipitation, it appears we will be around average. The average total of precipitation for all three months is around 9.67 inches.
