Temperatures Went the Wrong Way!

This was more for my own curiosity to see what has happened to the soil temperatures in the state following 2 weeks of cold, snowy weather.  Our temperatures went down in almost all of the locations.  From the weather stations at the OARDC branches, these are the soil temperatures at 2.5 inches, from March 21 and April 11:
