Spring begins with the vernal equinox at 7:02 A.M. (EDT) on March 20, 2013 in the Northern Hemisphere. Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born and is also used as a metaphor for the beginning of better times. It is also an unstable time of the seasons.

According to Wikipedia.org, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt towards 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.

Unstable weather may occur more often during spring. 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. In addition to this, supercell thunderstorms can also produce dangerously large hail and very high winds, for which a severe thunderstorm or tornado warning is usually issued.

Spring begins March 20, 2013!

While spring is the result of the warmth generated by the rotation of the Earth's axis, the climate in many parts of the world is covered by events that seem very erratic take on a year-by-year basis. Spring rains (or any time of year) follow the trends most closely related to longer cycles or events created by ocean currents and ocean temperatures. Good examples and well documented is the effect of El Niño and the Southern Oscillation.
