For the first time, researchers have been able to build a consensus between different regional climate models using spatial statistics. In this image (above), the color red indicates regions of North America for which the statistical analysis indicates a 97.5 percent probability that average temperatures will rise by at least 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) by 2070.

I saw my first one forty-something years ago.
Seriously, you are seeing them earlier than normal. I haven't spotted any in Eastern PA yet this year. When I was a child, I remember them coming out in late June/early July.

Wanted to chime in here...I had actually seen fireflies over Easter weekend. Thought to myself that it seemed kinda early. Also, wanted to add that I saw bats flitting around in late March. I don't usually see them til (what seems to me) much later...
