A very warm fool's day

Posted: 02 Apr 2010 05:08 AM

Temperatures soared on Thursday well into the 80s and fell just a few degrees short of records for the date. On a statewide basis, yesterday was warmer than nearly every day during July of 2009! The featured analysis displays the number of days during 2009 that were warmer than 1 April 2010. It is amazing to consider that for some locations, there were only a handful of days during all of 2009 warmer than yesterday! A cold front will sweep the state clean of the really warm air today, but temperatures this weekend will be spring like in the 60s.

Good = 63
Bad = 18
