The Midwest and Great Lakes just endured a historically cold April

The upper Midwest and Great Lakes states are known for their long, punishing winters. But an abnormally cold April made 2017-2018’s version seem endless.

Temperatures some 8 to 14 degrees below normal, averaged over the entire month, resulted in one of the most frigid Aprils on record in the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Temperatures ranked among the top five coldest during the month in most locations in this region, including Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Des Moines and Chicago.
