I don't know about severe weather, but looking at the frost and freeze potential coming up, I'd have to say this is probably the worst spring since 2007.  I visited KY for several days, and most of the fruit trees have been damaged to some extent, and considering the cold still to come, many apple orchards may be hit hard.  This year's crop may suffer considerable losses or be wiped out, at least in KY.

The only saving grace for this spring compared to 2007 is: we've had more rain, so no drought like we had in the summer of 2007, and March was MUCH colder this year compared to 2007, so other hardwood trees aren't as leafed out as back then.  Other than that, this spring sucks.  :-\

If it means NORMAL temperatures, I'll deal with it.

I will say the Euro is concerning for a huge area over a couple days. A front eventually comes through here with storms but severe parameters for areas to the north and west are off the charts as modeled now.

Sadly, this has seemed inevitable for a few weeks now. And it seems to be a concern more often than not during our spring seasons nowadays. Maybe it's just me, but it seems to happen more frequently than it did years ago. I think it was you who said a couple of days ago that it seems like we don't have true spring anymore. It's hard to disagree...

What days is it showing for mid Tennessee?
Looking at the euro control(which is the unperturbed eps, there is a brief warm up to well above normal around day 9 as another cold air mass comes into the central US. Looks like a training got heavy rain as it creeps east and a window for severe. After it shows well below normal temps again. In fact the vast majority is below normal and if it’s correct wouldn’t be surprised for another potential freeze at some point mid April.

Keep in mind, below normal is getting warmer as we move through each week. Overall though it the EPS is right this is not a score her pattern. More like cool to cold for this time of year followed by a brief above normal period and possible heavy rainfall or severe.

I am guessing "scorcher pattern" based on context.  My Title IX training prevents any further comments. ::whistling::
