Two thirds of the way through spring 2013, Tucson's had its second warmest spring on record so far, the National Weather Service says.

The average March-April temperature this year was 67.7 degrees, or 4.1 degrees above normal. Warm days have done the most to push the averages up. The average high temperature for this period was 82.9, 4.8 degrees above normal. Tucson's weather records date back to 1895.

It's been warm enough lately to overcome the unusually cold spells the region got in January and February that pushed their monthly average temperatures well below normal. The average temperature for the first four months of 2013 was 59.2, .3 degrees above normal.
