Spring is here. Well, at least it feels like it. The official first day of spring isn’t until Tuesday, March 19, but these warm temps are a great appetizer.

Curious what it will be like when spring really arrives? Lucky for us, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center lets us know what weather trends to expect for March, April, and May. While exact weather conditions typically can’t be predicted more than a week in advance, here’s a seasonal outlook to help you prepare for what spring will bring.
