The weather, currently.
Monday is going to be one of the colder days we can have this time of year, as temperatures barely break freezing along the coastline and stay below freezing inland. Early blooming trees and plants will be hit by the cold snap—nothing's going to be killed though, just damaged for the year. Tuesday morning will be one of the coldest late March mornings in six years, as many places fall to the upper teens and lower 20s. Temperatures will begin to moderate on Tuesday afternoon and then rise back near or above normal for the end of the week. —Dave Epstein
