US Temperatures: April 2012 vs April 2013

What a difference a year makes! WELL BELOW NORMAL APRIL ACROSS THE US!


What I find interesting is that the center of the "colder than average" area has stayed virtually the same since the beginning of the year.

Here are the April temperatures compared to the average across North America

 Once we include MARCH AND APRIL, the map looks virtually identical

How about FEBRUARY, MARCH and APRIL? Little change in the map

The entire year from JANUARY through APRIL shows how the center of the cold evolved over the last 4  months

The BIG QUESTION will be whether or not the CORE OF THE COLDER THAN NORMAL AIR breaks down, drifts west or east or expands?  More on this later.....

Scott -- love the maps showing how much colder this Spriong was than last year. Are those NOAA maps? Any chance you could post or send the original links? This may explain a fair amount of the near term weakness in the economy!
