SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - The cold temperatures might make it seem like spring will never get here, but it's on the way.
That's why Iowa State University Extension and Outreach of Woodbury County hosted a climate webinar, as part of the Master Gardener series.
The goal is to inform gardeners about what to expect during the upcoming growing season.
Experts say the frosts should end close to Mother's Day.
They also say recent extreme weather patterns and fluctuations are different from what's considered to be a "normal" growing season.
"We have extreme precipitation events that are occurring more and more frequently. So the more information I can get on why those are happening and the preparation, I think the more prepared I can be." Ginger Waller, Gardener.
According to ISU Extension experts and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the weather trends and extremes we see in this area are likely to become more frequent as time goes on.
