Well at least we had an extended period of spring weather this year. Now time for the ridge to kick in and bring the heat....  So much for severe season

For a normal year I would agree with you, not so much this go around IMHO. It is going to go from cool to hot here in the south and quicker than you think.

I bet it's not out of reach that someone sees a 50+ degree swing in temperatures from today's low to today's high.

We may actually do it in Nashville. Currently official is 79 degrees (way up from the earlier forecasted 69). It's very possible the station nudges 80 between the hourly reports. That would be a 50 degree climb from this morning's low of 30.

Pretty amazing.

Big difference in temps in parts of the state.  66 here, mid 70's in southeast and middle TN, and some lower 80's showing up out west.

Low of 30.2, high of 80.0 here. 49.8 is close enough isn't it?

Tomorrow's high temperatures just keep dropping--now forecast to be barely 50.  That will make a hard freeze more likely tomorrow night, if that's as warm as we get during the day. Right now, the forecast calls for 33 by Friday morning, but that may be optimistic at this point.

This spring, weather forecasts have consistently underestimated the strength of the cold air intrusions.  In our area, Tuesday morning's lows were four degrees colder than forecast.  I am already preparing for another night in the 20's tomorrow.  Sigh.   ::shrug::

It's been an abysmal spring for growers and farmers. Apple orchards are preparing for a bad year, especially for our neighbors to the north in Kentucky after nearly two weeks of unusual cold and multiple late freezes.  Strawberry farmers are also struggling and probably losing some or all of their crops.

It’s frosty again this morning. The next time I see frost, there better be college football on that weekend. And I don’t mean spring games either. ;)

MRX was right to exclude the Chattanooga area from the frost advisory. It was cold enough for it this morning, but it is hard for frost to form when the wind is gusting over 20 mph.

We had yet another subfreezing night out here with a heavy frost.  We reached a minimum temperature of 31F... five degrees lower than forecast.  At least this time we were below freezing for only a couple of hours, instead of eight hours on Monday night / Tuesday morning.

This March weather is well past its expiration date and is starting to smell.

Looking at the forecast. Tomorrow’s high is 70. That’s the only time we are supposed to hit 70 the next 7 days. Highs in the 60s and lows in upper 40s and low 50s.
