April 2018 General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Actually feels a little hot outside in the sun, but the breeze helps. Sort of weird to see bare trees with this kind of warmth but maybe it's not all that unusual.  We did have a particularly quick flip from winter like temps to full on spring though.

Crazy...so you've melted about 55" of snow in 2 weeks?? :snowman:

It is still hard to believe that, for the most part, trees around us have not even budded yet.  Sure, April was a bit chilly...but you'd think the longer days and recent warm weather would have allowed for nature to take its course by now.

Over the past 10 days, I kept thinking it would be "any day now"...and I have been wrong 10 days in a row.

I think the average date around here is ~ April 15.

It was the 13th coldest on record, but the coldest since 1975 and 2nd coldest since 1951. There were quite a few cold aprils in the early days of climate record. Also, DET was markedly colder than official DTW, and all the other years (except 1975) were at DET or other locals in Detroit proper.

 And as joyous as it is to bask in 70 degree air and all that will unfold in the coming months, there's a part of me, that even after 6 months of snow and cold, hate's to see the snow melt and winter retreat north. I guess if there's any comfort to be had, the days will begin to grow shorter in only 7 weeks.

Goodbye winter

Surprised there was such a large temp difference at DTW versus Flint. 4F.
