Winter and Summer Weather in the Same Week

United States
May 3, 2018 5:32am CST
Weather conditions in New England can change on a dime. They say if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it is bound to change. Monday it was cold and drizzly and it even snowed. The snow fell from the sky in chunks! Yesterday it was near 90 and the sun was blazing! Loved it, all but the heat. Today it will be in the 80's again and we will be getting scattered thunderstorms. Wish they were at bedtime so I could sleep. I always sleep best during a thunderstorm. Happy to finally have spring. Hopefully the cold weather is behind us. But you never really know. How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

This reminded me of an article of British marathon runners getting heat stroke on a 23 degree temperature. I was chucking away. 23 degrees seriously

It doesn't have to do with the actual temperature but with the body being dehydrated

This week is chilly, and I turned the heat on today. Yes, spring is finally here.

I had to turn on the heat to get the chill and dampness out of the air today.

@ElusiveButterfly I've had to do it one day as well, though yesterday I was barely home, so I didn't turn the heat on, then it was warm enough not to when I did get home. Supposed to be a chilly wet day today, so no doubt, I'll be turning it on again.

@just4him I turned the heat on again this morning. It is going to rain all day and the damp weather wreaks havoc on my arthritis. When it warms up a bit, I'll turn it off again. I have to bake something for hubby to take for his dessert at lunch, so it will keep it warm enough in here.

@Courtlynn the weather forecast has been right on point this past week. I am hoping they are wrong for the end of the week. I have Thursday thru Monday off and I want nice weather for it.

Yep, it is said that if you don't like the weather in NC just wait a few minutes. I think ours is on a steady track toward summer now. We are in the 80's but with low humidity. It is nice outside. Now, when the humidity starts I will hate it.

The humidity keeps me from moving south.

@ElusiveButterfly I don't blame you. It is going to be a scorcher this weekend. Highs in the 90's.

@Shellyann36 our temps will only be in the 60's this weekend. Oh well, I'll wear a light jacket if I go outside.

We have the same saying in Canada. It was nice and warm yesterday but blustery. Today is a bit less warm, and only breezy.

It has been windy here. Scary when you have tall trees around your home.

@ElusiveButterfly Yes. Luckily, only twig size branches came off my tree. My Toronto cousin's tree wasn't so lucky.

Our last really cold weather was the second week of March. Since then it's been up and down. But it's been staying not much colder than fifties. I think a lot of states say to wait five minutes

I am finding that it is a much more common saying that is not exclusive to our area alone.

Here in MI it does the same thing. It changes very quickly.

Our weather is definitely all springlike weather. April had an inch of snow, but that melted quickly.

April was not a great month for warmth. We had a mostly cold weather and snow.

I am sure with your humid weather that the cool weather is a treat.

80s! Wow! It does seem like our weather has changed dramatically in a few weeks. A few weeks ago we had 16 inches of snow dumped on us and now its approaching mid 60s and sun.

Hard to believe that just 2 weeks ago the plow trucks were out.

We are heading to Melbourne in a few days where they say the same about the weather as you say about New England. I like a good thunderstorm too.

I am hopeful that we will get a thunderstorm soon. Hoping it is during the night.

What we have here is Summer and it's often hot in the afternoon, but rainy season is going near.

We had quite a bit of rain, and am now looking forward to sunshine.

I think we may have finally reached spring, a bit later than usual but the past few days have been good.

We are now getting rain that we should have had in April. Seems a bit delayed, but as long as the warm weather is here too, I'll take it.

Wow! :) The weather has been strange here too: a total confusing fluctuation of heat or chilliness!
