It was snowing this morning and it changed to rain, In the afternoon it started raining harder and blowing. Then it started snowing again after sunset. Everything is normal again for one Spring day in New England. I know it's Spring because the chickens are laying and bees have started raising brood. I don't think my bees care much for the rain and snow as I did not see any about. The top, internal weather in three hives is 80F @ 65%RH, 83.7F @ 75% RH and 79.5 F @ 60% RH. Notice how close the temperatures are for three different colony sizes and all top temperatures are well above the dew point. (Temp. sensing is accurate, RH has a bigger measurement tolerance).

Tomorrow it is going to hit 50F, typical!
