We had a lovely taste of spring at the end of March and the warm trend has continued to begin April but it's actually a little cool to start the 4th month of the year. 

During the last week of March, 5 out of the 7 days we saw above average temperatures. 
Even though it's been a nice start to April, the first two days were several degrees below what's considered the average high. 
The average high temperature for the first week of April is 66° and climbs to 74° by the end of the month. 
This weekend we may even hit our first 80° day. 
Nashville hasn't seen an 80° day since October 10th of last year. 
Looking long-term, the Climate Prediction Center has has placed Tennessee with a 50% chance of seeing above normal temperatures for the remainder of the month.

We'll see how it plays out but I think everyone is in good agreement that it should stay warm.
