Temps in the 20’s for the next four nights, here in Mountain Maryland. Not good gardening weather. :(

Not great here. Lows in the 30's, highs 45 to 50. "Normal high is 59 degrees. We saw that, on one day. Earlier months were mostly above normal.
Lot of rain, too.

2-3" of snow predicted here in SE MI tomorrow. It has snowed every day for the past 4 days. I wish it would quit long enough for me to mow my grass! :lol:

It does look like there's going to be a good swath of heavy accumulation across the middle of Illinois, southern Iowa, and northern Missouri.

58 degrees here, and sunny, today. "Normal" high, is 59 degrees. Probably the second, near "normal" temperature day, this month. Too much rain, too.

This month is on track for being the worst April, weather-wise, that I can remember in many years.
