WEST LAFAYETTE — A top state climatologist says the weather patterns that brought Indiana a long, cold winter could linger into April and possibly into June.Purdue University-based associate state climatologist Ken Scheeringa analyzed government weather data and Indiana's temperatures over the past century.

His analysis suggests that Indiana's average April temperatures could run 2 to 4.5 degrees below normal. Scheeringa says his analysis also suggests that April, May and June's temperatures could average between 0.4 degrees and 2.7 degrees below normal over that three-month period.

Indiana's average February temperature was about 8.7 degrees below normal, while March is running 6.6 degrees below normal so far.

If Indiana does have a chilly spring, experts say some farmers could face planting delays because it will take longer for wet fields to dry out.
