April 2021

Thursday is April 1st.

And, it’s going to start off cold. Perhaps 40s for highs the first day of the month followed by overnight lows possibly dropping into the upper 20s... bringing freezing concerns to vulnerable plants and trees on Friday morning.

Should rebound over the weekend followed by warmer temps next week.

The first 10 days or so look to be pretty boring.  This is good because we could use a break.

First the frost/freeze potential and then we should see a Central US Ridge pattern. 

I still think the second half of this month gets pretty active severe weather-wise and that may last until the first few days of May before we see a May 2012, 2018, or 2019 pattern take hold.

Yes, we could!

This has happened before, a front loaded type of spring with a very quiet april, and then it ramps up again in late april to may...i will never forget may 2003 when there was about a 7 day period of moderate and high risks in mid south, that was a scary several days

That week was the worst flooding in Chattanooga in my lifetime. I can't remember exactly how much it rained, but the TN river blew past flood stage despite TVA's best efforts.
