Average AprilApril 29th, 2012 at 6:38 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
After our warm March many wondered if April would follow suit – however it didn’t. Although April has been on the cooler side overall the monthly temperature is about average. One thing that sticks out in my mind about April’s weather is the chilly nighttime temperatures. The National Weather Service kept issuing freeze warnings and frost advisories because for five mornings during the month the temperature was at 32 degrees or lower. I would like to *hope* we’re done with the freezing temperatures but once we get past Mother’s Day I’ll feel a little more confident. This might be because I’ll have planted my flowers and vegetables.
As far as precipitation we could have used a little more rainfall. April ended up being below normal for precipitation and we’re still below normal for the year.
One thing I am looking forward to is the increase of daylight. (of course sunlight late in the evening isn’t great when I have to fill in on the morning shift) It’s always great to see (and hear) the kids playing outside enjoying the day.
I took a look at the sunrise and sunset times for April and May – there’s quiet a big difference!
