It’s back.

March came in like a li­on, and it was sup­posed to go out like a lamb. But now, in mid-April, the cold that gripped the East Coast last month has sud­denly re­turned, for­cing the coats we had stuffed deep in­to our closets after a warm week­end back onto our shoulders.

In cit­ies from Maine to Louisi­ana, tem­per­at­ures dipped in­to the 30s Tues­day night, and a re­peat is ex­pec­ted Wed­nes­day night. Tem­per­at­ures will be­gin creep­ing back up on Fri­day, and the East­ern Sea­board will be back in 60-de­gree ter­rit­ory by the week­end.

A few days ago, beau­ti­ful photo gal­ler­ies of Wash­ing­ton’s cherry blos­soms had re­minded us that spring had fi­nally ar­rived. Now, thanks to this satel­lite im­agery from the Na­tion­al Ocean­ic and At­mo­spher­ic Ad­min­is­tra­tion, it’s clear we have to hold out just a little bit longer.
