APRIL FOOLS or APRIL FREEZE?

The all-time April Record Low Temperature is 29 degrees, set ironically on April 8th, 1971. It's ironic because this April 8th, Wednesday, we could get down low enough to at least flirt with that record. No fooling here.

This last cold front didn't have the support and moisture to bring the widespread rains like the last few. And that's a GOOD THING. We could use a break from the rains for a little while as the rivers need to get back under control again. But what this cold front will do is bring in a MUCH COLDER airmass. One that will make it feel like Winter, not Spring. Breezy conditions Monday and Monday Night will rule. Temperatures will NOT rise on Monday Afternoon. It's going to be a rare occurrence for these parts, this late in the year. Temperatures in the Mid 30s Monday Night and Low 30s Tuesday Night will cause some plant issues - if you took advantage of the nice weather over the weekend and got those tender plants in the ground. So take the precautions the next two nights to keep them safe...

The other thing working against us will be daytime temperatures struggling to rise anywhere near seasonable levels for a few days. Tuesday, there should be spots that DON'T reach 60... for a high! We normally have lows that hover around 60 this time of the year sometimes.

Old Man Winter isn't done with us just yet!
