Not only buds here but plenty of leaves coming out on trees. Buds have been around since late January.

Interesting. I remember ben86's photos showed some small leaves on the trees. I wonder how far along looks like?

I see some tiny red buds.

The coolish cloudy weather that we've been getting returned again this morning. Supposed to clear up; lots of dew this morning.

Average for today: 47.5F/25.1F

Actual low: 39F
Current temperature: 46F (and cloudy)
Forecast high: 75F (and sunny)

Impressive diurnal range, though I've seen higher. If it doesn't clear up might be harder to reach 75F.

I mostly see just buds but I also see some leaves and flowers on some trees. This is probably the earliest I've seen some of the main trees begin leafing out, it always happens in April.

The forecast for today is 66F & Sunny.

Another gloomy start to the day. 50 F at 11:20AM. Forecast is for sunshine and a high of 72 F. I wonder if it would have been even warmer were it not for these cool and cloudy starts we've been having.

Haven't noticed any buds yet. Just some green grass starting to pop up.

Cloudy start to this Sunday too. It's also around 50F/10C or so here.

Nonetheless, much-above-average temperatures continue and even increase as next week rolls by. There will be days of over 70F, according to forecast with Wednesday having a high of 25C (77F) if the forecast is right! Right now, the forecast which goes to next week will show closer to 11C/ 52F highs by the next weekend's time, but even so that'll be above average. So, really, the higher-than-normal shows no sign of going away.

There are buds on some trees but no leaves.

I also wonder if for anyone in the North-eastern general area, this'll be the end of the frost-prone season already (not much chances for freezing again if trend continues?) -- it's still too early to say if that'll happen for some areas of the northeast but it'll be interesting if the "last frost" of this year was already behind us.

No buds yet, no 80s either though we came close. I did however see some grass starting to turn green. I also have heard some birds too. We get a front today and snow/rain in the forecast tonight through Tuesday morning. But Wed-Fri look to warm up back fast, but to the upper 60s/low 70s as opposed to the mid to upper 70s we had this week.

Anyone wanna know what Joe Bastardi is up to?

Aside from being able to work from home with WeatherBell. He's now doing videos on the road. And his son might have been texting while driving. LOL

Is there any graphic anybody knows of of this heatwave in North America showing the geographic extent of where places have been getting record temps (and where, if anywhere, is abnormally cold to balance it out)? So far from this forum I've got from Winnipeg to Colorado to the Mid-Atlantic coast upwards and to Toronto - anywhere further afield getting record/abnormal heat?
