The crazy weather of 2018 in the US took another turn away from the so-called global warming trend when NOAA yesterday claimed the U.S. had its coldest April in more than 20 years
Below-average temperatures spanned the Rockies to the East Coast.
Many citizens were left asking the question, when will winter end after a powerful spring storm is pummeled the U.S. Midwest and Plains as summer was put on hold with a late-season storm causing chaos in mid-April.
Everyone seems to be wondering, "What happened to spring?"
Last month, a persistent flow of Arctic air blanketed the eastern two-thirds of the nation.
Record cold and even snow in some areas delayed the onset of warm spring-like conditions.
According to the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), The average April temperature across the contiguous U.S. was 48.9 degrees F (2.2 degrees below average), making it the 13th coldest April of the 124-year record, according to scientists from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information.
This was the coldest April since 1997.
The month saw record- and near-record-cold temperatures from the Northern Plains to Gulf Coast and the Northeast.
The Southwest was warmer than average.
