Garter Snakes

How do the garter snakes know when is the best day to come out of their den in the spring?  They seem to have it timed just right.  I noticed the garter snakes on Monday afternoon slithering through the dead grass and leaves.  They have been in their den on the hillside for about six and a half months.  Somehow they knew that the weather was going to change and become much warmer.  The high yesterday was 12°C.
