Currently it's too early to tell and not certain by any means, but a big trough and/or upper-level low bringing snow and abnormal cold is definitely a possibility .

"starting"? On plants? Interesting. It was amazing to see a burst of green within 12 hours litterally yesterday. Its like we got microwaved.

Westport near coast. Shade and mini leaves already on trees.



Up state an hour away in Torrington. Blooms coming out but still bare on some trees.



Here's a map of where the pics were taken. And more amazingly, 3 weeks ago New Rochelle, NY (southern NY) was the same as the 1st pic Last Week!

Looks like we're getting some much needed rain this weekend, hopefully we actually get a decent amount of rain instead of the "traces" of precipitation we've been getting lately.

The "heavy rain event" today has been well short of what was predicted, only 4mm has fallen, predictions went for 20-30mm today.

We need rain here in the USA in many areas:

The warm winter and hot and sunny spring has pushed many areas into severe drought mode. Here in the Atlantic states from Connecticut/NYC south to northern Florida D2 to D4 conditions prevail. My garden soil is like beach sand as of right now. Most of the plants are showing little drought stress as of now, and the grass is very green, but I think as the solar angle continues to mount, that will not be the case in the coming weeks unless we get alot of rain. Otherwise, I enjoyed a nice sunny 80 F beach day yesterday, so I can't complain too much.

Don't forget Massachusetts right next door. The eastern half of the state is in D2 conditions.

Rain all day and 10.1mm today. Nothing like a hosepipe ban in certain areas of the country to kickstart heavy rainfall.
