Hooray, Spring starts today. But why are the next few months expected to be much warmer than they would normally be? One word.

Democracy, and government in the sunshine after years of lies, hate and fear, it is now time to enjoy our new and improved year. The USA survived Donald’s distraction for destruction and It is time for Spring cleaning.

Here are the forecasts from the experts for all to see. 6.3 billion observations per day, to be precise, according to NOAA.

Each day, NWS collects about 6.3 billion observations. The weather service annually issues approximately 1.5 million forecasts and 50,000 warnings.

Each year, #USA averages approximately 10,000 thunderstorms, 5,000 floods, 1,300 tornadoes and 2 Atlantic hurricanes, as well as widespread droughts and wildfires. Weather, water and climate events, cause an average of approximately 650 deaths and $15 billion in damage per year and are responsible for some 90 percent of all presidentially-declared disasters. About one-third of the U.S. economy – some $3 trillion – is sensitive to weather and climate.

National Weather Service (NWS) provides weather, hydrologic, and climate forecasts and warnings for the United States, its territories, adjacent waters and ocean areas, for the protection of life and property and the enhancement of the national economy.

The Equinox on planet Earth 🌏 is tilted with axis points neither towards nor away from the Sun. Astronomically, it gives us Spring north of the equator, and Autumn south of it. Also 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of nighttime worldwide.

For fans of warm weather, we've got some good news: Federal forecasters Thursday said that overall, almost the entire nation should see warmer-than-average temperatures for the next three months, with the exceptions being a small portion of the Pacific Northwest and in southern Alaska. 

However, with the warmth, drought will also be a major issue, especially across most of the western U.S., where springtime rain and snow is forecast to be less than average

This will not be the endless summer the Beach Boys had in mind. If we not curb emissions, summers could last six months or more by the end of this century, according to forecasters.
