From sudden summer back to winter for the US East Coast. It’s another bumpy transition from winter to summer as is often the case.

The high of 82 in Central Park marked New York’s first 80s in March since 1998.

The source of this heat, as is often the case at this time of year, came out of Mexico.

As is ALSO often the case, an early taste of summer is often followed by a blast of late winter.

After record lows Friday morning, the afternoon proved more January-like than early April. A high of 39 in Central Park was New York’s first high stuck in the 30s in April since 2003.

Warmth building over the Central US will gradually spread into the East and ease the winter-like chill.
