Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 80. Southwest wind between 10 and 15 mph.

Maybe this will help warm up our northern neighbors...you go girl!

No chiggers or scorpions yet, but summer is here.

It's only 84 in New Orleans right now (4:45 PM), but the heat was absolutely oppressive earlier today. Probably didn't break 90, so I guess the humidity is the culprit.

Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun (and I have some English blood mixed in with mostly Scottish). But, after five or ten minutes doing yardwork in the heat I was inspired to seek refuge inside. I put off trimming the hedge until another day.

No chiggers or scorpions. Other things live in the canals. The saying is that you know you are a New Orleanian when you stop wondering what lives in the canals.

We've had a couple nice days in the low 70's but saturday will drop 20 degrees. By sunday morning wind chills will be in the upper 30's. 10-day forcast doesn't include any day above 68 for a high or 48 for a low. That barely qualifies for spring let alone summer.

No chiggers, I'm north OF Montana

We have mosquitos the size of condors, black flies that take your first -born and grasshoppers that eat everything in site, but NO chiggers.

Nothing like a Mayfly hatch.......

I lived right on a slough on the Mississippi River for a couple years, and the DPW would put their snow plows on during a hatch and PLOW the Mayflies off the bridge over the main channel.......

We got it Saturday for a bit. Today though looks pretty nice and all the snow under our trees has melted. The parking lot snow banks remain around the city. Yearly betting pools on when the last snow bank is gone are popular.

Ice is off the big lake, the floes broke up and it is gone.

This thread has convinced to try to stay no more than 2 miles from the Pacific, its bays and estuaries. And for over 40 years that is just what I have done.

Frost and freeze warnings for last night and tonight.
Moved all my potted plants and newly emerged seedlings inside my screened porch, with the plexiglas panels still in place. It makes a really nice walk-in cold frame.
No white stuff expected TG.

It's pouring buckets. Snow and ice pellets expected overnight. My daffodils have given up the ghost.

Also pouring buckets in northern illinois with more rain on the way. I heard on the radio that we are having the wettest spring on record. I may need a snorkel, but no snow and ice, except for hail, in the forecast

Feels like we have stepped back to March here in the PNW. Raining and 47F. Forecast calls for sun and 70's this weekend though.
