You've heard the phrase, "April showers bring May flowers." Parts of the country need more than just an umbrella these days.
From tornadoes, to summer-like temperatures, to piles of snow, April has been a month of extreme weather.
In some places, you'd never know it was only mid-April. At a state park in Connecticut, kids jumped for joy at the beach, while adults soaked up the sun.
"I can't believe we're out in April," one beach-goer said. "It's fabulous."
"It's beautiful out today," another person at the beach said. "The water is very cold, but it's nice to relax and put your feet in the sand."
The temperature soared to around 90 degrees in Philadelphia, and because Boston was so hot, people chose to bypass the world-famous marathon.
"First time ever we've got air conditioning in the tents because of the weather this year," Doug Daniels, a Massachusetts emergency medical technician, said.
The unseasonably warm weather is expected to last in parts of the Midwest and Northeast through the end of the week.
However, Old Man Winter is holding on in other parts of the country with a vengeance.
In northern Minnesota, residents are shoveling out after rain and snow pounded the area and forced school closures. Chisholm, Minn., received nearly a foot of snow.
"I was amazed that on April 16 we could get this much snow," one Minnesota resident exclaimed.
"No, I wasn't expecting this much, but it's Minnesota," another resident said.
Meanwhile, parts of the Midwest continue to clean up after more than 100 devastating tornadoes swept through Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska over the weekend. In Sweeny, Texas, heavy rain turned streets into lakes.
The extreme weather follows the hottest March on record, but farmers are on alert; the weather could turn again.
Another vicious frost could ruin crops like blueberries and apples that have bloomed in some cases a month ahead of schedule.
