    After 3 days of sunny, warm weather, during which I spent the afternoons tanning by the pool....today was our day for overcast (but still warm) skies, some rain, some drizzle...

    Spring has arrived! (I think) Today, it was warm and sunny with a high in the upper 60s. The 7-day forecast calls for highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s everyday, with a few chances for thunderstorms on a couple of the days. The warm weather, combined with the time change, will certainly have everyone outside enjoying the weather after school and work this week. There were already tons of people out this weekend. I had to wait in line for dinner on Saturday, had to wait in line at the gun range this afternoon, had to wait in line at the store. On those first nice spring-like days in Chicagoland, everyone just comes out of hibernation!

    While I'd like to hope this spring-like weather will continue, I do realize that we're still in mid-March in the Midwest, and Mother Nature can still wallop us with some cold blasts into April and even May. But I'll enjoy the mild weather while it lasts.

    Hawaii has had a massive storm system moving across the islands for the past 10 days or so. On Friday we had tornadoes and hail the size of golf balls. Record rainfall. Floods. It has been crazy. I don't believe that tornadoes have ever been recorded here. We have had many water-spouts (the smaller variety that occur over the ocean), but no land-based twirly monsters.

    I christened yesterday the unofficial first day of spring. It was the first nice day of the year (not occurring at a freakish time). We usually have some temperate weather mid-March and expect that will become the norm in a couple more weeks (but yes, I expect more cold fronts, it's just that yesterday the 'tide turned' and we can generally expect more 'good' whether than 'bad').

    Same here in the central Ohio Valley, 'cept we're fully three weeks ahead of normal -- pear trees blooming, magnolia fully flowered out, and grass growing like wild. I'll have to mow and soon at that.

    Chicago set a daily record today with a high of 81 degrees. This is also the third-earliest 80 degree day for Chicago ever recorded. The earliest 80 degree temp was on March 3, 1974.

    The warm weather is expected to continue at least through the middle of next week. This is very bizarre. It's not unusual to have warm days in March, but we usually don't have such long stretches like this. It's usually a few nice 70s degree days, followed by several 40 degree days, and so forth. Whatever the case, I'll take it. Hopefully the nice weather continues.

    Very weird day for weather in Metro Detroit yesterday. They believe it was an EF3 that touched down in Dexter, near Ann Arbor. There was also unconfirmed reports of tornadoes near Monroe (south of Detroit) and Lapeer County (north of Detroit)

    Amazingly, there were no serious injuries or fatalities. Very slow moving strorms and very widespread.

    Edit:

    Looks like the Monroe one was an EF0 and the Lapeer one was an EF2.

    It's mid-March in upstate New York, and we've already had the spring peepers peeping. I noticed today that our hostas are beginning to emerge from the ground. It seems way too early. I wonder if we'll have a string of, say, 50-degree days in July and August to make up for the early spring.

    I agree. It is making me feel uneasy for this summer.

    Day after day after day of 70F+ weather. Generally sunny, though some thunder-bumpers did roll through Thursday night, including a small twister just a few miles north of Toledo's corporate limits (in the small Michigan town of Ida). Some damage, but nothing compared to Dexter, MI. I know my son, for years a resident of Ann Arbor (now in PDX), had some chums in Dexter. Hope they are OK.

    I have noticed and most likely so have you.....flies, skeeters, bees, brown grass suddenly turning green, shorts, short-shorts, tight tank tops, and other assorted "stuff" that signals "spring".

    All next week, until Friday, more 70F+ weather. Much cooler on Friday.....65F. That would only be 15-20 degrees above normal.

    I think this the first time I've been sunburned in March. Spent the past two days biking through Wisconsin.

    The weather was gorgeous this weekend in the Detroit area and it's supposed to be pretty nice most of this week as well, with temps near 80º through Wednesday. The leaves are already coming out on quite a few of my trees! I was planning to reseed an area of my lawn this spring but I guess I better do it sooner rather than later or else the spot will be in too much shade...

    This is the earliest I've seen spring ever arrive in Michigan. We might get the odd 70 degree 'preview of coming attractions' day or two in March most years, but it's been in the 70's every day for almost two weeks now! I'm sure we'll get a cold front in at some point, but I'm confident in saying spring is really here.

    We've been in the mid 80s the last few days and are pegged to stay there, or perhaps slightly warmer, through Thursday. Possibly 88F tomorrow, a record.

    We did have a wicked hailstorm Saturday evening. About 10 minutes of marble-sized hail, followed by a brief lull, then a good 3-4 minutes of nickel and quarter sized hail. I'm a little worried whether my roof may have been damaged. Certainly, all the young sprouts in the ground and on the trees were not aided by the hail.
