Below is a chart of where we’re at compared to normal weather. Two things to notice:
- That record breaking temperature week in mid-April is when a lot of people and the average weather says Spring started, but we immediately plunged below average after that with many over-night freezes. This re-set the “lawn start” of Spring.
- Moisture. We’re above average on precipitation but that is due to Snow. We are up nearly 100% from where we should be with snowfall since January 1st but are “only” ~30% higher on overall precipitation. That snowfall fell on frozen ground. That means we’re actually low on Spring rain – so important to our growing season. Let’s hope that turns around!
