Default Spring 2012 Thread (March-May)

The months of March, April, and May are in most parts of the Northern Hemisphere a time of transition from Winter to Summer. The nature of this transition, if there is one where you live, varies greatly geographically and chronologically. The first day of March seems to be as good a time as any to get started with this topic.

Discuss the weather happenings for the months of March, April, and May, as well as outlooks, forecasts, and speculation, here. These three months can bring a variety of weather, anywhere from severe blizzards and the height of wintry weather to the first heat waves signaling summertime locking in, so keep an open mind about posting non-"springlike" information.

A sunny, warm day today, chilly this morning at 3.3c but warmed up to 14.5c.. this time of the year is usually good at producing relatively big temperature swings..

Then we are both happy Sophie because I'm looking forward to the summer

Right now I'm in Hong Kong and have been so for the past week, and although I was extremely happy to be here for personal reasons, the weather was absolutely crappy and couldn't feel less springlike. I haven't seen the sun for the whole week, it was abundantly foggy with some light rains and temps didn't exceed 15C on most days, staying even below 13C a few days ago.

Talk about springtime in a tropical coastal location !!! That's cloudier than London in December !!

I'm heading back to Nice tomorrow, I hope the weather will be better. It's been sunny the whole week there apparently, and it's gonna be party cloudy with some rain the upcoming week...

It seems like here, in the Northeast, for the past 3 years the beginning of spring has been marked by heavy rain. Luckily this year, because there was no snow pack, the rain did not lead to flood like in the past 2 years. I wonder if the heavy rains in late-winter/early spring here is a coincidence.

Noticed that as well. What rain are you talking about? You mean the snowstorm that I just got.

This is bad timing for a spring thread, for me, next week one of coldest temperatures of the winter is forecast.

What difference a couple of hundred miles make!

How cold is it supposed to get next week?
In NYC, Monday night it will drop below freezing (27F) and Tues temps will be in the high 30s but the rest of the week looks warmer than seasonal.
In my hometown in NJ it might get as cold as 21F on Monday night but things will warm up to mid 60s later in the week.

Monday night will be the cold night here (11F). We follow the same weather patterns.

Will warm into the low 50s later in the week, maybe mid 50s with nights above freezing.

Still snowing right now. It's a 155 mile drive from my place to New York (Upper West Side).
