Big warmup ahead 

By Kirk Mellish

In the 30 years I ‘ve lived here it seems like clockwork. We get a frost or freeze in March right when the pear trees are blooming with their big white stinky flowers. Then we warm up again. Then we get a frost or freeze in April around the time the beautiful sweet Dogwoods bloom with their cross snowflakes.

Hopefully, if we do get cold again next month it will not be as damaging as this freeze. Normally we would not expect it to be as cold as this cold wave, so hopefully this is the coldest until next winter.

Lows Friday morning expected to be in the 30s with some frost.

Meanwhile, a big and welcome warming trend is in store:
