Re: Climate zones by heating and cooling

Maybe because of how quickly the spring heats up and stays hot to the west. The Hardiness Zones are only taking those extreme lows into account. I think this map shows why there's a difference between northern 7's and southern 7's. Also, I notice the MS River bulge northward on this one which I've always wondered about.
