MASON CITY, Iowa – Ahh, the smell of spring, flowers ready to bloom … and a record-setting low temperature. It doesn't exactly seem like spring, does it?
Mason City set a record for the coldest April 4 in history today when the temperature dipped to eight degrees.
The previous record was nine degrees in 1995.
Rochester dipped to six degrees early Wednesday, tying a record from 1995. 
Spring will be here eventually. We think.
