WAKEFIELD, Va. — Following a string of winter storms across the Commonwealth, the National Weather Service in Wakefield announced today that the 2021 spring season will officially begin and end sometime around April 12 and span a total of length of 39 minutes.
“We’re predicting less than an hour of spring weather, sometime towards the second week of April,” senior meteorologist Lisa Wagner confirmed in an official statement, adding that the forecasted time for the spring season would likely fall in the late afternoon hours on the April date.
“We may be off by a couple of hours, but we’re pretty confident that, on a state level, we’ll get our beloved picnic weather and t-shirt temperatures on the 12th of April around, say, 3:30 p.m., before plunging into the brutal summer season. Virginians will have a short window of time to enjoy the spring season, so we advise all citizens to get your craft beer packs and Instagram feeds ready for the undoubtedly short-lived occasion.”
She concluded her statement by indicating that the possibility for a spontaneous 40 degree day toward the end of April had not been ruled out, as “this particular winter just will not die.”
