Blackberry Winter

Wayne Howard

It's not unusual that we have a late cold spell. Old folks called it "Blackberry Winter" or "Dogwood Winter" since it coincided with the blooming of those plants/trees from mid-April to early May.

The record low during the month of April for Lincolnton was 22° on April 8, 2007. It got down to 28° on May 8, 1989. Among the record temps for a specific date:
April 14, 2008--30°
April 15, 1997--31°
April 16, 2014--27°
April 17, 2018--29°
April 18, 2001--31°
April 19, 1983--27°
April 20, 1983--28°
April 21, 1953--28°
April 23, 1986--30°
April 26, 1969--34°
April 27, 1992--34°
