17 year cicada emergence predictions

Filed under: Brood XIV — Dan @ 5:46 pm

Hey everybody!

Using Gene Kritsky’s formula, and the Weather Underground, I’ve pulled together some sample emergence predictions. Chances are I missed your town, but you can use the formula and gab your own prediction.

Louisville Kentucky – May 11th

Lexington Kentucky – May 15th

Cincinnati & Batavia Ohio – May 15th*

Charleston West Virginia – May 11th

Bendersville, PA – May 15th

Islip & Stony Brook, LI — May 16th

Plymouth, MA – May 22

Falmouth, MA – May 24

Looks like the cicadas will start appearing a couple at a time next week, and then starting the following week the full-blow emergences will begin in the southern most states.

* Note: Gene Kritsky wrote to say that he has predicted May 13th for Cincinnati using his formula. The reason the numbers differ is Gene has more precise temperature information.
