Forecasters are predicting a wet and warm spring 2017 across most of the country.

The spring season began at 6:28 a.m. on Monday, and forecasters are saying that areas from the East Coast to most of the South are expected to experience a very warm, but damp spring, according to the Daily Mail.

This comes after parts of the Northeast experienced record-setting warm temperatures in February, despite the fact that people were reminded last week that it was still the winter season, as temperatures dropped to the 20s and below.

“That was our three days of winter,” said Jon Gottschalck, the chief forecaster at the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration, the Daily Mail noted.

“Hang tight, bear with it, because our forecast for spring is above-average temperatures,” Gottschalck said.

Places like Nevada, Wyoming and California made history this winter, according to the New York Post.

Nevada and Wyoming set new records for precipitation while California came close to setting a new record, recording its second-wettest winter in history.

According to the San Francisco Gate, the first week of spring is going to give people a hint of the warm weather to come while also reminding us that we’re not quite removed from the winter season just yet.

“We’ll have unsettled weather through the week,” said Steve Anderson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s. “Major impacts will be urban flooding, and it will probably trigger some mudslides.”

This comes after what was a “weird” winter, which went down as the sixth-warmest winter in the U.S., AccuWeather noted.
