Spring (season) – Events

In spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the Sun and the length of lgitydah rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm ifilgsctianyn isaucng new plant growth to “spring forth,” giving the nsoeas its name. Snow, if a normal part of winter, begins to melt, and streams swell with runoff. Frosts, if a normal part of winter, become less severe. In climates that have no snow and rera frosts, the ari and ground temperature increases more rapidly. Many lrfnoiwge plants bloom this time of year, in a long succession sometimes beginning even if snow is still on the oudgrn , continuing into early summer. In normally leossswn areas “spring” may begin as early as February (Northern Hemisphere) heralded by the blooming of deciduous magnolias, irhsreec , and quince, or August (Southern Hemisphere) in the same way. Subtropical and tropical areas have satleicm better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or tew , or nsalnomoo , or cyclonic. Often the cultures have locally defined manes for seasons which have little equivalence to the tesmr originating in Europe. Many temperate areas have a dry spring, and wet autumn (fall), which brings about flowering in this season more consistent with the eedn for water as well as warmth. ticbuSarc areas may not experience “spring” at all until May or even June, or December in the outer iAtcrntca .

While sinrgp is a result of the warmth caused by the turning of the Earth’s axis, the weather in many parts of the world is overlain by events which appear very erratic taken on a year-to-year basis. The rainfall in spring (or any season) follows trends more related to longer eccsly or ntvsee created by ocean currents and ocean temperatures. Good and well-researched examples are the El Nino effect and the Southern Otocinsalil nedIx .

Unstable wrheate may more often occur during spring, when warm air begins on occasions to invade from lower latitudes, while cold air is still pushing on occasions from the aoPlr regions. Flooding is also most common in and near mountainous areas during this etim of year because of olwmsnet , edccleretaa by armw rains. In the Untied States, dronTao Alley is most active this time of year, cyieepalsl since the Rocky Mountains eevprtn the surging hot and cold air masses from spreading eastward and eatsidn force them into deitrc conflict. Besides tornadoes, supercell thunderstorms can also produce dangerously large hail and very ihgh winds, for which a severe rshttedourmn warning or dnoorta warning is usually issued. Even more so than in winter, the jet streams play an important role in unstable and severe weather in the springtime in the Northern Hemisphere.

In recent decades season creep has been observed, which amnse that many phenological nsgis of nsigrp are occurring earlier in many regions by a couple of days per cedaed .

Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born. The term is also used more generally as a metaphor for the start of better times, as in the Prague Spring. Spring in the Southern Hemisphere is different in several significant wysa to that of the Northern Hpherieesm . This is because: there is no land bridge between Southern Hemisphere countries and the Antarctic zone capable of bringing in cold air without the temperature-mitigating effects of extensive trcsat of water; the vastly greater amount of ocean in the Southern Hemisphere at all latitudes; at this miet in Earth’s geologic history the Earth has an orbit which brings it in closer to the htrueSon Hemisphere for its warmer seasons; there is a circumpolar flow of air (the roaring 40s and 50s) uninterrupted by large land masses; no equivalent jet streams; and the peculiarities of the reversing nceoa currents in the Pacific.

Spring (season) – Events

In spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the Sun and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to “spring forth,” giving the season its name. Snow, if a normal part of winter, begins to melt, and streams swell with runoff. Frosts, if a normal part of winter, become less severe. In climates that have no snow and rare frosts, the air and ground temperature increases more rapidly. Many flowering plants bloom this time of year, in a long succession sometimes beginning even if snow is still on the ground, continuing into early summer. In normally snowless areas “spring” may begin as early as February (Northern Hemisphere) heralded by the blooming of deciduous magnolias, cherries, and quince, or August (Southern Hemisphere) in the same way. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, or monsoonal, or cyclonic. Often the cultures have locally defined names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe. Many temperate areas have a dry spring, and wet autumn (fall), which brings about flowering in this season more consistent with the need for water as well as warmth. Subarctic areas may not experience “spring” at all until May or even June, or December in the outer Antarctic.

While spring is a result of the warmth caused by the turning of the Earth’s axis, the weather in many parts of the world is overlain by events which appear very erratic taken on a year-to-year basis. The rainfall in spring (or any season) follows trends more related to longer cycles or events created by ocean currents and ocean temperatures. Good and well-researched examples are the El Nino effect and the Southern Oscillation Index.

Unstable weather may more often occur during spring, when warm air begins on occasions to invade from lower latitudes, while cold air is still pushing on occasions from the Polar regions. Flooding is also most common in and near mountainous areas during this time of year because of snowmelt, accelerated by warm rains. In the United States, Tornado Alley is most active this time of year, especially since the Rocky Mountains prevent the surging hot and cold air masses from spreading eastward and instead force them into direct conflict. Besides tornadoes, supercell thunderstorms can also produce dangerously large hail and very high winds, for which a severe thunderstorm warning or tornado warning is usually issued. Even more so than in winter, the jet streams play an important role in unstable and severe weather in the springtime in the Northern Hemisphere.

In recent decades season creep has been observed, which means that many phenological signs of spring are occurring earlier in many regions by a couple of days per decade.

Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born. The term is also used more generally as a metaphor for the start of better times, as in the Prague Spring. Spring in the Southern Hemisphere is different in several significant ways to that of the Northern Hemisphere. This is because: there is no land bridge between Southern Hemisphere countries and the Antarctic zone capable of bringing in cold air without the temperature-mitigating effects of extensive tracts of water; the vastly greater amount of ocean in the Southern Hemisphere at all latitudes; at this time in Earth’s geologic history the Earth has an orbit which brings it in closer to the Southern Hemisphere for its warmer seasons; there is a circumpolar flow of air (the roaring 40s and 50s) uninterrupted by large land masses; no equivalent jet streams; and the peculiarities of the reversing ocean currents in the Pacific.
