Maybe it’s because we’re spending more time outside, but I feel like this Spring has been the most “Spring-like” that I’ve experienced in my time here. I feel like in past years it’s gone from chilly to blazingly hot and humid overnight, but not this year? Whatever it is, it’s awesome.

Haven't been here as along as most, but I would agree. I have come to hate "Spring" here because of the pollen and the quick transition to the heat. Not this year (just too bad we can't share it with friends/family).

I hope you didn't jinx it m378

The weather has been very nice the last couple weeks. I'm not looking forward to the eventual transition to summer-like weather.

I agree. I just commented on it the other day to my family. The first time we visited here 12 years ago was the first week in April and it was in the 80s and that seemed par for the course. This is the first year I can remember a "real" spring, with moderate temps, no humidity and chilly nights. I don't even think the pollen lasted as long - I cleaned a windowsill in my BR a few weeks ago and not since and there's almost no pollen there.

I've been thinking the same thing. Overall a very nice spring.

In the cruelest irony imaginable yes I was thinking the same thing yesterday. Pollen came and left early this year and didn't seem as severe as usual. Storms have only been in the overnight/early morning hours and most days have been clear, sunny, and comfortable. An abnormally long stretch of open-window weather where opening the window doesn't cause the inside of your home or vehicle to turn yellow.

At the rate 2020 is going so far I anticipate a record-breaking-heatwave-filled summer, and at least 3 major hurricanes in the fall, and who knows maybe Yellowstone will blow and start a nuclear winter in December.....so trying to enjoy what is still enjoyable lol.

I believe our last freeze (<32F) in Raleigh was on March 8th, when we hit 28. This was the earliest “last frost” in a long time. I think there was <5% chance of that happening per almanac forecasts.

Yep, it's been perfect Spring weather. And like people said, even better because the pollen was way less this year due to nicely timed storms.

Is that all??? The year is barely 1/3 over, I think it's got much more in store. If I make it to 12/31/2020 I'm blowing the doors off this year. There may be 5 million people in Times Square LOL.

Pollen has been as bad as normal but it started several weeks early due to the mild winter.
