March here went down as the hottest on record, average high a whopping 9.1F above normal. The average temp record itself was also shattered by 1.1F, by far the biggest spread ever. What a surprise with 15 days over 85F and 9 over 90F. Right now 64F.... :roll:

SPC has La. under a high risk. Don't see that often, nasty supercells on going, long track tornadoes too. TWC actually worth watching at the moment.

Only .15 from the storm here with no severe weather.  The storms were moving fast, so not much time to drop rain.  I imagine people were happy with that where  it hailed.

My location is Homestead, Florida  33030.  I checked the average temperature for March and it is near 70 F not 71F so my mistake.  I will make the correction in my post.  Sorry for the mistake.

March 2016 was much warmer compared to March this year.  The average temperature for March 2016 was 73.1 F and March 2017 69.3 F.  April this year is off to a very warm start though with average temperature 76.8 F through April 4.

The weather here is like crazy...

two weeks ago we broke the all time max for April, with temps reaching 25C (77F). Now we have quite the opposite. It got a lot colder. Today is supposed to be the warmest day of the week - and it is only around 5C (40F) during the day with freezing temperatures expected at night and on Wednesday we have snow forecasted! Very unusual for this time of the year, it is common, but only at night and usually at the beginning of April, not the end.

And as you can imagine, this is a total disaster for the crops, given it was almost summer 2 weeks ago and these high temperatures lasted for almost 3 weeks, everything is already flowering and now it will freeze. Also most people already changed winter tires.

Sounds fairly similar to how central Oklahoma weather behaves during some early springs and ruins the peach crop.  Not this year.  No freezing weather since mid March.  April, the first of the three big tornado months has not been very lively, fortunately. Spring rains are putting a dent in the drought.

April is usually like this, it is probably the most variable month in general here, but this year it really is extreme because 2 weeks ago we broke the absolute maximum records for those days and now we are on the other end, close to the absolute minimums for this time of the year and so this is rather unusual to see extemes on both ends to be broken in a matter of 2 weeks

Even here at the coast we had two light air frosts of -0.3C and -0.6C, which is rather unusual so late in April.
Just a few miles inland it was significantly colder though with widesprad lows of -2 to -4C (25-29F) and -6 to -8C on the ground (17-21F).
There is well known apple growing area here in the vicinity (close to Hamburg) and one can only hope that the damage to the blossoms is not too bad.

Snow wasn't much of a problem here though, since apart from just a flakes we got nothing and also the afternoon highs still made it to 8-10C (46-50F) in the past days which is about four degrees (C) or eight degrees (F) below our average April high.

I have to say apart from the two night freezes, late April 2016 was more interesting here, especially in terms of snow.  ;)
