Phenology with local naturalist Larry Weber every Friday morning at 8:20 on Northland Morning.

Backyard Almanac: A Southern View

Larry Weber chimed in from Winona, MN and noted that the lawns are turning green and concerns for snowstorms are minimal. The Mississippi River is in flood season though. Each area has their own obstacles, and each has learned how to adjust to the weather and climate events.

Migration continues, so Weber got a preview of what we’ll be seeing in the Northland in the coming weeks. The wildflowers were also a draw for his visit. Catching the flowers just right can take accurate timing. “They very quickly grow and they very quickly bloom,” says Weber.

This year’s average temperature for the month of April is likely to be lower than the usual average of 39 degrees… and there may still be some snow in the cards. Weber is hoping for another tenth of an inch to push the total snowfall to 140 inches on the season.
