Only minor positive- maybe, the cool conditions have somewhat slowed emergence of vegetation versus what it would be if we had a lot of warm days at this point. Still a lot is blooming and budding... but, it's about time to since Sunday is April 1st.

Just hope we can avoid a hard freeze- that graphic does look cold.

Fick that shut! I'm ready for some sunshine and delicious weather.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

At this point, I would have to agree.  I would like some pleasant 70's for at least a month or so, before the broiler gets turned on.  Seems like we go straight from winter to summer these days, and the reason being--Old Man Winter shows up to the party way too late, then doesn't know when to leave.

Worst spring in recent memory.  So many dead or dying blooms on most of the trees (at least up here in KY).  And as for snow in April, it can happen.

I remember that snow in the late 80's in Kentucky, but I was surprised to see how much fell in east TN.  Near 10" in Knoxville, and areas east of there had 15-18"--and that was in valley.  In April?  No thanks!

Thanks to a late snow pack with the recent system, parts of Illinois dropped to near 0 overnight, blowing away in a big way record lows for the date.  Lincoln, IL down to a frigid 1 this morning.  Incredible for April.
