Don’t pack your sweaters in mothballs just yet; meteorologists are predicting a colder-than-normal April this year for parts of New England.

According to AccuWeather.com, a polar vortex will bring below-average temperatures to our region and parts of the East and Midwest starting Sunday, April 3.

AccuWeather.com said nighttime temperatures could drop below freezing, which is bad news for tender young plants just now poking their heads up -- not to mention blossoming fruit trees.

It won’t be as cold in Fairfield County as in the Midwest, but highs may barely reach the 40s in the New York City area while the vortex passes through, AccuWeather.com said.

Things are expected to warm up -- a little -- by April 10, AccuWeather.com said.
