It’s official! Warmest day of the year was yesterday

I think we can officialy say spring is here, and summer is probably not too far away, given the temps recorded around the area yesterday! My blog poll last week asked when the first 85 degree temperature would be recorded. A whopping ZERO of you voted for “prior to April 25”! Well, you were all wrong -and so was I!

The official high on Thursday (April 23) was 85, with many stations in the Mid-South surpassing that (see below), including here at WXLIVE! where the high hit 87! The normal high of 74 was surpassed by mid-morning (even with a few stray showers passing through) and while a record was not broken, it definitely was very warm. How warm will it be as we head into the weekend? Check out the MWN Forecast, but I can give you a hint – we may not be done with mid 80s yet!
