"It's that time of year in the Northeast US"


Philadelphia, US
          

Wow, April is often a crazy month weather wise in the Northeast and Middle Atlantic States in the US and this year is no exception.

I was walking around the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge on Thursday last week and the temperature hit 57°F (14°C) and we had on light sweaters. Then last Saturday morning it was 40°F (4.5°C) and we wore parkas.

Today it's currently 85°F (29.5°C) and humid, so the air conditioner is on. The expected high is 88°F-90°F (31°C-32°C).

Saturday it's back down to 59°F (15°C) for the day's high, and 34°F (1°C) for the nighttime low.

This is definitely weather during which you can get sick if you're not careful.

Pretty much the same here in middle Tennessee.

I have a splitting headache from the barometric pressure change, and we are under a tornado watch beginning at 1 AM.

This is a dangerous time of year in the mid-South.

It's been that way in North Georgia. Tomorrow I guess it's going to start to rain for two days to boot. I have to check the smart phone each morning whether to dress warm or cool, wet or dry.

The front for our two days of on and off rain and thundershowers just ran through here, and it's pouring, and what an electrical show we're having.

More interesting the temperature at 8:17pm ET was 85ºF (29.5ºC) and the temperature now, at 8:31pm ET is 68ºF (20ºC). That's quite a drop.

Hey, I envy you guys. Here in the PNW, except for a few renegade days of sun, we're gray and 5 degrees either side of 50. Consistency is boring.

The storm front is about 150 miles west of my town, and not moving very fast. The slow movement is actually good, it's helping to get it here when temps are cooler, thus lessening the chance of tornadoes. The humidity is so high I had to turn on the AC, too.

Good luck with the storm. It's been torrential at times and I couldn't see my neighbor just a hundred feet away. We're in between storms now. Next one looks to be around 5am.

See you later back in the forums.

And iI thought you were going to say 'pollen seaon' .....

I didn't realize that Sheri. Now I understand all those fire warnings I've seen from the US Weather Service in your neck of the woods.

Here we've had quite a bit of rain. In the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge they might have to open the gates in its large impoundment pond to let water out, it's gotten so high, to ensure shore birds will be welcomed with good mud flat areas.

I hear you. Maybe soon. By this weekend it's supposed to be temps in the 60's and sunny for 3-4 days. I hope you get the weather you need soon.

On April 4th, I shot images of Wilson's Snipe ice skating on a solid frozen edge of a freshwater mud flat. And not much different the next couple of days. I thought that quite strange for April, to say the least.

On Wednesday, April 10, my useful shooting was cut short around 9am when at least it felt like the temps hit 90F and the birds laid down like it was mid-day in July. By noon it did pass 90F, at least in town where the local weather stats are kept. Same thing yesterday and it probably cost me decent shots of an important bird.

Like Michael, I'd like to see more than 3 days of Spring this year .

Today it's raining hard here and according to the radar, where you are too. The weekend is looking great for birding.
