Planning an outdoor 6/16/2018. Comments on possibility of rain

Macon, Ga pollen

what is the probable forecast for departure of the heavy spring pollen?

Early Spring

Here in Chesapeake, VA, there are mosquitoes out, the birds are mating, the trees are budding & my tulips are already 6 inches! We have had up to almost 80 degree days and that was in February. I am concerned over this weeks freeze. Hoping everything won’t die that has already budded.

More Winter

Mid 70s to 80, records broken in late February?
It's hot enough in the summer, We needed more cooler days. Only relief is when it rains, which I enjoy. Most years in March is so windy and cold in Coastal NC it's unbearable but routine. Everything is bloomed weeks ahead of usual.

Have we had enough cold weather to kill off the insects

My concern is over population of insect's. Don't think we've had enough cold weather to get rid of most of them. Winter started out with a bang. It has been rough. But not cold enough long enough to knock out some of the insect population! 0

Mosquitoes Are Out

Mosquitoes are already swarming in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. We Need More COLD!

Loving these warm temps!!

I am truly hoping winter is gone!! I grew up in OH dealing with the snow from lake effects off of Lake Erie. I moved South to get away from snow. I don't mind snow around Christmas but then it can go away!! I love living near the Mountains but my Fibromyalgia and arthritis hates the cold and rainy days.
For those who like cold snowy winters move to Michigan, Washington State, Alaska. You will be happy but as far as the South go away winter I am ready for Spring here in NC close to Stone Mountain!!


We have broken records in Savannah. South Georgia is more like Florida than the Carolinas.

Why is it so hot during winter month of FEBRUARY in Rocky Mount?

I want cold air and cold winter seasonal winter air in FEBRUARY 2018 in rocky mount.
I can't believe AGAIN it's between 65 DEGREES! or up to today AGAINn disgusting 70's.
I want winter time in the WINTER months...We get 5 long months of winter from November at least til End of March?
Yet it feel like a brisk lovey fall or spring day.I don't like that. UGH! LOL
and why is it raining so much in ROCKY MOUNT FEBRUARY 2018.

End time

We have no total control of the weather,you have to talk with Jesus about it all, we are living in the end time ,Jesus is soon to come,!! Have a blessed day!
