Michigan weather can have a perverse sense of humor. In general Winter is done by the beginning of April but I've endured ice storms, hail and blizzards well into that month. Last year the garden was quite convinced it was safe to grow and my Flowering Almonds put on a glory of blossoms only to be blanketed by a deep layer of snow.
