Winter Weather: What Does it Mean for Spring?

The past winter has been one of the coldest in Chicago's history. 

The winter season saw the most days at or below zero degrees. Also, the Chicago area recorded a total of 80 inches of snow, making it the third-snowiest winter on record, according to Accuweather.com.

For the Chicago area, seven of the meteorological springs following a top 20 cold winter were also one of the top 20 coldest springs on record. Twelve out of 20 were considered cooler than average, according to the National Weather Service.
