So, meteorological spring is now less than two weeks away, and many people who appreciate the change in seasons, what do y’all think will transpire this year for the spring season of 2021? Please discuss

Ugh I've been waiting for this one.
Tuesday on looks pretty nice. Most upper 50s and a lot of 60s including some mid/upper 60s. We have not hit 70 since basically Thanksgiving. Pretty rare but not unheard of.
Something's gotta give soon. Our lowest monthly max for March is 72 set 20 years ago. Typically we hit 80 at least once in March. Last year we hit 84. As soon as we hit 70 I think (or at least I hope) we'll be golden and will see a lot of spring life start to come out. After this week's cold weather we're looking to be at least near or above avg. Just need that one really warm day to help kick it off. Of course March could have a big cold front but I really hope not. We also haven't been below 20 this winter. January didn't even drop below 25. So hopefully that stays consistent and we don't get any strong cold blasts.

If my past Florida springs are anything to go by, warm, towards hot and quite dry until the end of May.

I do miss having distinct seasons.

I’ve been waiting for this thread As for the short term, modified cold air could be in place but then an active pattern along with consistent 40s and some 50s for highs and lows above freezing takes hold. Long-term model guidance is currently suggesting a pretty warm, typical La Niña pattern to take shape in much of the Eastern US likely during sometime in mid March, and it will be an active severe season as well I believe, not that it matters much for my area. Plenty of rain here for March but likely drying out in April-May. So excited to not have a spring like last years which saw arctic blasts late due to the fact that the polar vortex never weakened during the winter so cold air just built up there and when it finally weakened a bit it unleashed a record spring chill. Thinking that 2011 is a really good analogue due to being a cold winter La Niña, with a similarly snowy February to this year, and then a nice March and April warmup.

Why are you complaining? The West has loads of mountains to protect them from the cold airmasses. The troughing doesn't bring anything to California and Arizona other than some partly cloudy sirius skies and breeze. It's much more of a problem for Texas and the Southern states, where it can sag down cold airmasses from the Rockies, and create dreary, overrunning conditions.

It still brings us cold and occasionally rain. March is when 70s are supposed to be common. Troughing brings highs only in the 50s and 60s, bleh

Western Europe is about to enter into an unusually strong early mild period. Temps in the 60s across much of the region. 70 degrees could be reached in some areas by next Wednesday. Quite a sudden change from the cold and snow witnessed last week.

The 20-21 rainy season is one the driest in my area, if not the driest. The average rainfall is 75.2 mm annually but from the beginning of rainy season only 0.8 mm fell.
