  • It's 9:47am the weather is cooler than yesterday morning. The environment is empty but i can hear the birds are singing or whistling at each other. It's very cloudy and it looks like it's going to rain. The temperature is 65 degrees and the humidity is 88%. The trees are spreading pollen and its landing on my car.

    Question:
    Do the birds like windy weather conditions?

  • The temperature was in the low 70's today, it stayed warm most of the day and in the late afternoon it got colder like in the 60's, and windy as well. The pollen level was high too, i know because my eyes were itching the whole day. Also we got some drops of rain before sunset.

    Decision:
    Not to turn on the AC, it feels a little chilly tonight.

  • Today was very comfortable. It was in the 70's. It was not too cold and not too warm. It was cloudy. The first thing I noticed in the morning was a yellow sheet of pollen on my windshield. I have never seen it that much. Tonight it is very windy and chilly though.

    Decision:
    I am deciding I'll sleep with socks on tonight because it is quite chilly.

  • This morning it was high of 75 degrees and a low of 70 degrees. Clouds and sun, winds at 16 mph, humidity of 76 %. High pollen in the trees and moderate pollen on the grass. It was a little breezy and the caterpillars were on full display. As I look around my neighborhood, the azaleas are in full bloom.

  • First thing in the morning a caterpillar felt on my head when I was in my driveway. Disgusting!!! The evening was breeze and the humidity about 60%. Rain for the day was predicted but did not rain. High temp 73 F and low temp 62 F. I believe that last year around this time the wind was stronger than this year.

  • It is very windy today, picked up later on in the day. It was also very cloudy this morning, the sun is now peeking out. Feels muggy, and cooler than yesterday. I've noticed a lot of pollen falling off the trees too.

  • There is a slight chill than yesterday. The clouds are covering most of the sky causing little sunlight to come through. However, how is it possible that one part of the sky looks like it is going to storm and the other part looks fine? It is expected to rain near 7pm.

  • So many caterpillars. Everywhere, on the roads and in gardens.

    Question:
    How common are caterpillars in the prairies normally? I've always seen them but I don't remember so many. Am I wrong? Do they come in waves some years?

  • Today I found it to be very warm and humid. While outside I noticed soo many caterpillars in one area. I counted to ten and then stopped because I couldn't stomach looking anymore. I thought this was interesting because I had never seen so many at once and in one place before.

  • Today the temperature was around the 70's, humid but at times you could feel a little bit of breeze that helped the day not to feel as hot. We had a few weeks around the 60's, so today we definitely felt temperatures go higher than usual.

  • Today was very humid, about 75 degrees you could see the trees sway which would mean that there was a tad bit of breeze which helped.

  • Today was a humid, sunny day with a high of 75 degrees F. I noticed many spider webs and inch warms as I entered my friends backyard as well as the insane amount of pollen covering the steps and bricks. Despite the bugs and allergies I encountered today, it was a beautiful day to spend outdoors.

  • Today high temp was 74 F and the lowest was 62 F . winds 10 to 20 mph. Pollen was still falling down from the trees. There was about 60% of humidity. I enjoy the weather today. Finally, I spy a spider in my house. I guess spiders like the warm weather.

  • Mid 80's today and partly cloudy. Great day for working in the garden.While picking a little parsley for the evening meal, I found a full-grown black swallowtail caterpillar also having parsley for its evening meal. Considering the cool, wet weather and lack of monarchs this year, I was a somewhat (pleasantly) surprised to find such a large caterpillar this early.

  • This week, I'm covering parts of Congressman John Carney's "Climate Change" tour of Delaware this week. At today's event, the mayor of Leipsic, Craig Pugh, mentioned that in the past couple of decades, they've seen a shift in primary fish species, from weak fish to striped bass. Weak fish, by the way, are the state fish. I wonder what caused the striped bass to take over?

    Memorial Day at Lake Irwin, CO - blanketed with fresh snow. Spent a weekend at a cabin - it snowed almost constantly, adding about 10". No BBQ for us!

    Question:
    Snowpack was way low all winter, but now it looks like it could be well above average for this time of year. Is it?

    Monsoon-like clouds spotted near Albuquerque, New Mexico. We've been getting a mix of torrential rain and clear and sunny weather throughout the day. The moisture has allowed for more verdant landscapes -- cactus blooms and greener-than-usual flora and fauna, according to locals.

    Question:
    Usually in Arizona, monsoon season doesn't come until July. Is this the same for New Mexico? How are El Nino weather patterns affecting other Sun Belt regions?
