Average high temperatures are currently in the mid to upper 50s across much of the area with the exception of far northeastern North Dakota until northwestern Minnesota where the averages are in the lower 50s.  Average low temperatures are in the upper 20s to the lower 30s.   By the end of the month those averages will climb into the low to middle 60s for highs and mid to upper 30s for the lows.  This means our averages will climb by one degree about every other day this time of year.   Although our spring warm up is in full-gear, our average last frost day is still 3 or 4 weeks away meaning the growing season is not here quite yet.
