Spring Comes Early to…[Insert Your State Here]

Climate Central has a fantastic new graphic on the phenomenon of an increasingly ‘earlier spring’, as measured by a “first leaf” basis for each state. Look for a gray box showing when spring used to arrive (averaged for the years 1951-1980) and a colored box indicating the 1981-2010 average…the difference can be striking.

How does your state match up?
