Crazy weather scenario

Crazy weather scenario

I’m not sure how concerned I need to be:

3 days ago, it was 80 degrees (upper 70’s for 2-3 weeks prior). Flowers and trees were blooming, and my bees were out foraging. They were hitting my maple tree hard.

Then yesterday I got 4” of snow. Once the snow melted off their entrance I saw several dozen dead bees in each hive (5).

Just curious how hard it is on bees to have this kind of whiplash in temperature?

I did mite treatment in October.
