More normal-like spring ahead


A meteorologist says an upcoming cooldown should bring more springlike conditions to the Eastern Cornbelt.

Jim Noel is with the National Weather Service’s Ohio River Forecast Center.

“We’re running way ahead of schedule,” he says. “We’re running about 10 to 20 days ahead of normal, what I call green up condition when we start to see the vegetation and those early blooms coming out on shrubs and even on some of the early trees.”

He tells Brownfield colder weather is likely after this week with the last hard freeze in Ohio expected in April, more in line with normal conditions.
