A cold snap isn't unusual in April, but the level of cold we've had this spring is impressive.  And it's not just cold, but the amount of snow still falling in the upper Midwest and Great Lakes that makes this spring far from typical.  One has to wonder what summer has in store.

I've seen snow in April- early April though. At this late of a date- I'm not sure, but this may possibly be the latest I've seen snowflakes flying. It would rank up there with only a couple of weeks before the start of May.

My mom recalls seeing snow falling in May around Knoxville in the 1970s. Not sure what year.

Rain/snow mixture falling here now at 38F.  Pretty gusty winds with the showers, too. 

PER MRX:

Persistent cloud cover
today and the cold air advection will keep highs in the upper 30s
to mid 40s for most of the valley. These high temperatures would
set record values for lowest day time highs.

Winter didn't impress, but this spring sure has been one for the record books in terms of lasting cold.  If only this pattern had been around in February.

37F and a wind gusting to near 30mph is not my idea of a good April afternoon.  Thankfully, tonight's low is only dropping to 30 (in the valley).  That shouldn't do much damage to our greening trees.

I'm ready to take drastic measures to turn out the light of this thread!

We now have light flurries and a good bit of wind in Knoxville.  Part of February felt like May and now April feels like February.  ::shrug::

36 with snow showers falling here in the foothills.  Occasionally, the snow comes down in bursts of greater intensity.  We briefly got to 42 just before noon, then temperatures dropped.  It's insane cold for April 16th with wind chills deep into the 20's thanks to winds gusting over 20 mph.
