Forecasters: Mild Temps Not Leaving Any Time Soon

Ad Feedback

From the birds to bees, flowers and trees, it seems spring has sprung across much of the United States.

According to the National Weather Service, the spring-like temperatures are not going away anytime soon.
 
The weather pattern for the rest of the month will be dominated by the same warm temperatures that set 1,400 record highs since March 1.

That means the nation won't have the extreme flooding it's seen four years in a row since there are no snow packs for spring rains to melt into torrents.

Yet, some blame the strange weather for a rash of tornadoes like the one that slashed through Dexter, Mich., Thursday, leaving a path of destruction.

In some places, the early-bird warm weather means early bugs, including mosquitoes.

"They just have not died out this year like you would expect because we just haven't had that much cold weather," Jim Gardner, a Pitt County, N.C., mosquito control director, said.

Some farmers like Herb Teichman are worried about a late frost

"If a freeze came it would wipe you out," he said.

Meanwhile, others are having allergic reactions.

"You're stuffed up; you can't breathe, so you never really get any rest. I'm tired all the time," allergy sufferer Sandra Holmes lamented.

But few seem to mind swapping sweaters and scarves for shorts and shirtsleeves, and even the shore.

"Snowman for the first time last week and playing on the beach today," one beach-goer said.

The odd weather may leave many wondering what summer has in store.
