Close to a 50 degree range min to max today. Low this morning 14, current temp 62. Wind gusts to 35.

ValentineWeather, you have snow in your forecast for Friday?

Going  to plant iceberg lettuce, Yukon gold potatoes, snow peas, and icicle radishes for my garden this year. ;-)

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect Friday night through early Saturday morning. Moderate to heavy wet snow is possible in the Watch area. It is still too soon to detail specific snowfall amounts. However, up to 4 inches will be possible, with isolated higher amounts not out of the question.

Chance for some record cold here too. Forecast is calling for 10 on Sat. but they are almost always on warm side after arctic front. To Break record it will need drop down to 5 again so may be pushing it.
I'm looking at the RAP models for tonights snow most I'm seeing with afternoon runs is 1-2". So without a little deeper snowpack may not reach 5 necessary for record Saturday morning  :sad:...

Pretty chilly for this time of year. Not enough snow to help with the dry either. [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

With a mere 5 days on the clock, we're almost 8 degrees below normal for the month to date.  The next several days, maybe a week, also look to be well below normal.  After that, maybe a flip.  I've seen moths previously that started out far below (or above ) normal that ended the opposite, so we'll see how this one works out.  We went something like 15 or 16 months straight above normal before breaking the streak with one below normal month.  Since then, it has been a mix.

You think it's odd, but then you look back through the records and find it really isn't.  Records show we've had snow as late as April 18 (1/2" 1983) and freezing temperatures as late as May 7.  I also see a 34 on May 27, 1961

The record low for today is 24, but I'm not sure we'll hit that.  Record snowfall for today is T 1982 and we've already beat that - ground is white.

Yes, that date stamp say April even if nothing else in the picture does.  Well, the peach tree is trying to bloom, so there is that.  Not expecting peaches though.

Official site at the airport, 6 miles from me, is 5 above. Next county seat east, 2 above.

Never seen anything like this so late in the year. An inch of snow on the ground.

You were colder than Cherry County northern Nebraska then. 3 thermometers around here were 8,9,10. I think some of the colder core air from system has went south as the storm moved.

I've often said that April 15th is the Season change, no matter what NWS or the stars say.  Thursday is the 12th and that appears to begins a string of 70 degree days.  OK, so I was off by 3 days this year.

I think you have tax day confused with end of winter.  :-k At no time ever have I remotely considered middle of April being the end of winter.

Even here sprinklers are normally being readied, grass is greening up some even mowed during the Masters Tournament weekend.

This year totally different with temps running almost 20 below normal but more normal 60's on horizon.

Our average first 100F is late May. Bright side, at least this should hopefully start to kill off some of the damn pollen. ](*,)
