For most people, this is the time for April showers, sunshine, and shorts.
But our winter has been drawn out much longer than usual this year.
This isn't necessarily surprising, knowing how quickly weather around here can take a turn for the worse.
However, the average high in central North Dakota is 55 degrees right now, the average low around 30.
This weather is affecting more than just our noses and fingertips when we step outside.
Spring sports like track, baseball, and golf are having difficulties getting outside for meets and games.
Farmers and construction workers are getting concerned.
It's safe to say most of us are ready for a real spring.
(Ernest Medalen, Minot resident) "I just hope the snow ends pretty soon and it warms up. We don't want it to warm up too fast, so we have the flooding concerns, but we do want it to warm up and its time to warm up."
As Tim mentioned, the winter storm warning for the area is in effect into Monday morning.
