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.
