With all the snow we’ve seen this winter, it’s hard to believe that Minnesota is in a severe drought.
Here in the Twin Cities we average 2.4 inches of snow in the month of April. Much of it melts on contact with the warmer ground, and even if it does accumulate it doesn’t last for long.
We experienced our second warmest day of the year Thursday with a high of 53. Only Saturday’s high of 56 was warmer.
Our average high for early April is 51 degrees, and that’s why it has felt so cold the past few days.
With a foot or more of snow still blanketing most of northern Minnesota, the snowmobiling season may extend into April for the first time in years, said the Department of Natural Resources.
Mix Master John Williams “Jskillz,” put this together just for you today! Happy Spring!

We are locked in cool, northwest flow. These temps are average for around April 20 — not late-May.
It will be a little cooler than average this weekend, and try to remember what April showers bring.
At times March felt much like April. I guess it is payback time.
It’s hard to remember that we warmed to 52 degrees the day after Christmas. Many forget that we also hit 52 degrees on Jan. 10 this year. And many will be glad to hear we take a run at 52 (or warmer) on Tuesday.
Hope you enjoyed Monday’s weather, because Tuesday will be cold, windy and rainy. There is also a chance of snow.
The National Weather Service reports that 10 tornadoes hit central and northern Wisconsin on Sunday, tying an April record for the state.
March won’t go out like a lion this year.
We only have a few days left of March. It looks to be fairly quiet. The Canadian high pressure center will slowly drift off to the east over the next few days.
