Someone said this is the second coldest spring in history of the US on record

I found an article online, but it says "start of spring"? I don't think the April data has been compiled yet?
March was indeed cooler (0.9 deegress F) and drier than normal in the Contiguous US, but it was the 43rd coldest on record:
April data hasn't been published yet, but it would have to be extremely cold (by far the coldest on record) to bring it down to the 2nd coldest spring. Was it really that cold? It will be interesting to see the data.
World wide, it was the 10th warmest March. April data should be published soon.
Edit: It looks like whoever published the claim about the 2nd coldest spring published it on April 25 and compared it to March 1-April 30 for other years and March 1-April 18 this year. How does that work? Shouldn't you wait until April is over when comparing this year to March 1-April 30 in other years? The second half of April is usually warmer than the first half and usually much warmer than a March 1-April 30 average would be. The data for all of April should have been added in first.
I know I'm a weather nerd, but it seems like it is comparing apples and oranges until all of April is added in unless all time periods are using the same dates.
