Goodbye April

Today is of course the last day of the month.  This month will go down as one of the coldest Aprils on record with many locations ending in the top 10 for coldest.  Most of us will be happy to see this month end as the cold is still being felt with the delays in spring planting and with the lakes still frozen in the area.  I would not be surprised May finishing below average as well, but no where near as far below average as this month has been.  Finishing below average by a couple of degrees is noticeable, but will not have the huge impact that April had on the region.  Main concern next month would be a late frost.
