After being lulled into a false sense of seasonal security in March, April hasn’t exactly been the springiest of months so far. April showers may bring May flowers, but April snowstorms have pretty much only brought frozen plants and really cold baseball fans.
After another cold start this morning, temperatures will rise into the mid-upper 40s this afternoon. pic.twitter.com/YnDxFhcy1w— NWS New York NY (@NWSNewYorkNY) April 6, 2016
It’s looking like that cold stretch will be sticking around for awhile as well. Temperatures could dip back into the 30s again beginning on Friday with average temperatures across the Eastern U.S. not reaching normal levels for this time of year until April 15.
So just remember that if you put off doing your taxes until the last-minute you could be missing a mostly sunny (and perfectly average) day in the 50s. But once it finally does warm up, at least you have a lot to look forward to.
