After a record-breaking cold winter for much of the nation, it looks like this past spring also has been making a name for itself — with near-record temperatures of its own.
From coast to coast, temperatures have been warm, though there have been numerous days particularly in the Midwest and Eastern United States where temperatures have broken records or, at the very least, threatened to break them.
The Washington Post reports this was the second warmest spring on record, at 60.5 degrees on average.
So, what was the warmest spring on record? That’d be the spring of 1977, when temperatures topped out at an average 60.7 degrees.
I’m a roller coaster junkie, a weather enthusiast, a frequent traveler, and a numismatist. My love for coins began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I’m a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). I’ve also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, food, and living green… on a budget.
