Its a mostly cloudy day, breezy, cool 78 degrees in miami, I got the windows open. My N chromatus showed itself for the 1st time during daytime and my p cancerides is partially showing itself for the 1st time in two weeks. I just think its interesting that possibly the weather is making them somewhat adventurous.

Sounds like low air pressure.

Yes, i too found tarantulas become more adventurous in the daytime at such times, both captive and wild ones. Basically, i think it means its cooler and perhaps wetter, so there is no need to shelter from baking hot sun in the daytime. It probably only applies to a few species, but if they're hungry, then they get bold enough to come out of shelters/burrows and actively hunt. It might also be a good opportunity for them to look for new shelters/burrows.

Nice observations.
