Even though April is regarded as the first month of the warm season, which begins after only 10 days from the winter solstice, the air temperature rises rapidly, and the transition into spring is swift and frequently occurs prematurely. Under the conditions of global warming, in south-western Romania it is observed a rise in the recurrence of warm April months or even extremely warm, and the growing tendency of air temperatures. However in some years late spring chills and powerful frosts arise which perturbs the vegetation in advanced stages of development. Consequently, the destructive effects are intense and the damages brought upon the economy are significant, having an impact on the tree, grapes, vegetables and even cereals crops. The study addresses in particular the event of the most intense cooling of April amongst the entire recorded history of meteorological data in Romania and is part of an extended series of essays regarding the weather variability in south-western Romania. It aids undergraduates, postgraduates, climatologists and every specialist interested in climate change.
