A Spring Change For April

This image from the Oklahoma Mesonet shows a drastic change in both temperature and wind direction as a cold front was making its way across the state. The observation was taken at 2020 on 2 April 2011. The approximate locations of the cold front (blue) and dry line (red) are marked. It’s easy to see the differences between the two air masses.
Drastic changes in mesoscale conditions are frequent in the spring throughout the Great Plains and this instance was no exception.
