Beyond this weekendís activity, the SPC is already painting large risk areas for next week. The Day 6 risk covers nearly the whole state for Thursday.

I think it is time for a thread no later than tomorrow night for the mid-week threat coming up. When I see a risk outlined that far in advance certain events start to come to mind given the time of year.

I went ahead and started the weekend thread.  If someone else wants to start the mid-week thread then we can go ahead and get that started.  I probably won't look at the mid-week threat much until tomorrow if not Monday anyway because of the weekend threat and that I will be kinda busy.

I was pretty surprised myself.  I live in a deeply wooded area, and I usually see them sooner compared to the suburbs or the city, but this is early even for me.   

I did some research.  Firefly emergence depends strongly on temperature and soil moisture, and they love wet conditions.  I suppose our recent long stretch of very wet and mild weather could be playing a part in some appearing extremely early, just like with the mosquitoes I noticed back in February.

We reached 32F briefly this morning before clouds thankfully moved in.  That translates to a 43F temperature drop in 18 hours --- amazing for this region.

What lengths Mother Nature will go to each spring to kill my wisteria buds.
Hire the left-handed --- its fun to watch them write.

35 here this morning in London, KY.  Heavy frost.

Looks like another cold shot (by spring standards) coming this Saturday.  Going from 80 on Thursday, to 56 on Saturday, then back to 70 on Easter.  Typical April weather in Tennessee. 

The late week system looks interesting for the mountains of east TN/NC.  Strong system wrapping up nearby may bring high elevations some decent spring snow Saturday.
