This is the earliest Spring since 1896, in fact:

The vernal equinox — the first day of spring — [arrived today at] (March 20) at 05:14 Universal Time, or 1:14 a.m. EDT. Even more intriguing is that for those in the Mountain and Pacific Time zones, the equinox [actually arrived last night] (March 19).
