We have totally missed out on spring this year.. Will it come late or will it be one of those frost to heat wave years.. This is unreal.. The forecast is so boring to follow now.. Its depressing. We (I) need storms.. Please mother nature provide us with a stormy pattern before we enter summers boring weather months.

Lawd, some peeps can't be pleased.  I'm in paradise.  Outside on the deck with absolutely no bugs annoying me because of the cool weather...enjoying the full moon, listening to the whippoorwills that just arrived, and I can't find a reason to be unhappy on this fine Saturday evening. 

Cheers.   ::guitar::

Looks like a severe weather pattern in the Plains around about Wednesday.

A stretch of 80s coming here. I guess May will come in like May after the weird April pattern.

SPC has a day 3 enhanced area for parts of the plains. That is strong for a day 3.

its been at 30 percent since day 5 risk... in the 4 to 8 day convective outllook... which would lead to least enhance...

The temperature out here dropped to 34F early this morning ... with a lot of slushy frost.  I would guess there were places near the KY/TN border that briefly dipped below freezing.  ::cold::

Can I have another serving of spring now?  The first one wasn't thawed out and had freezer burn.

Hire the left-handed --- its fun to watch them write.

Tomorrow is the first day of May, and I have frost on the grass.

Ended up the second coldest April on record in West Tn and Jonesboro. Ended the month with an average of 53.5.  1983 and 1907 were number depending on what station.

I had 36 on the hill which translates to very close to freezing down in the bottom field. Widespread frost, but not a hard one. Hourly reports for both Lewisburg and Shelbyville dropped to freezing at 6 am. Hopefully thats it. Time to get the garden started and quit burning firewood.

That first dip in the pool (or lake) in the next few weeks may be chilly, unless we really have a good stretch of warm (even hot) weather in May. I would imagine the latent ground temperatures are a little behind where they normally are at this time.

Dropped to 35 here overnight, and noticed a lot of frost in the open fields on the way to work.  Looks like we finally get some decent spring weather this week.  It's the first long stretch of 80' since February (here in east TN).

I imagine the serious and career storm chasers will be out in OK and KS on Wednesday. Really, it's a multi-day event starting with some slight risk areas in the western Plains today... KS/NE/IA with some enhanced risk tomorrow... and the large enhanced risk (including a hatched area) covering much of KS and OK on Wednesday, which looks like the big day.

Pretty potent setup, it appears.  I haven't looked at the first morsel of data (trying to strike a tenuous balance of work, life, school, baseball) but the SPC disco hints at potential nocturnal supercell initiation and development across OK/KS.  Going to be a great few days of radar watching.

I hear ya- I guess we're at the age, when "disposable time" isn't quite as available as it once was.
