Do Spring Peepers Come Out in Oklahoma?
What is spring like in Oklahoma?
Certainly you’ve heard the phrase “if you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma, just wait 15 minutes” before. Well, honestly… it’s pretty accurate. Spring is an interesting season in Oklahoma, to say the least; sometimes, you’ll get snow flurries. Others, you’ll have a muggy day where rain is inevitable. Unfortunately, spring is prime severe weather season in Oklahoma; tornadoes are somewhat common, and some of those tornadoes can be unimaginably powerful. Large hail and flooding can also be an issue. But don’t let any of this deter you from visiting (or living) here; spring is also a beautiful time where the whole world seems to leap (or spring, rather) into life. Birds, including hummingbirds and other species, begin to return. Rivers, lakes, and waterfalls begin to thaw – which brings us to our next point.
What are some of the best things about spring in Oklahoma?
Springtime in Oklahoma is beautiful. Live-giving rains slowly begin to take over snow (though in early spring it’s not uncommon to still get snow flurries). Water thaws, meaning our lakes and waterfalls are fair game for boating and recreational activities; the forests and fields begin greening up again, and wildflowers start to carpet the ground and hills. Spring in Oklahoma means that summer is certainly on its way; some days, it’ll be chilly, but others, it’ll be quite hot. It’s an odd feeling to wake up to sunshine and go to sleep during a snow flurry, or maybe waking up to snow and falling asleep later to rain and thunder. One thing is for sure: it’s never really boring in Oklahoma if you learn to appreciate each season for its special magic. Spring also brings with it some pretty awe-inspiring festivals and events – check out this article for information on the annual Oklahoma Azalea Festival.
