Warmest Spring on Record
The spring of 2012 is set to go down as the warmest in the U.S. since records began to be kept in 1895. The previous record was in the spring of 1910, and was boosted by especially high temperatures in the northern regions – the Dakotas, Oregon, Montana and parts of Minnesota.
