this is the only day in April never to have any measurable, or even a trace of snowfall.


2019 - 0.04" of rain fell just before sunrise today, bringing the month's total to 4.55". with last April having 5.78" of rain, this was the first time consecutive Aprils had 4"+ of rain since 2004-2007. this was the eighteenth day this month with measurable rain, most of which was after 4/12. this set a new April record, besting 1874, 1934 and 1957 by two days. the last time any month had as many such days as this month was in May 2012.


2019's rain made this the sixth day in a row with some (totaling to 1.18" during these days). this was the first time any April has ended with six days of measurable rain. April 2018 came close however, with its streak occurring from 4/24 to 4/29 (1.33" fell during those days).


What is interesting about 1940 and 2020 being the only Aprils since 1900 to lack a 70+ degree high is in the 1800s there were 4 Aprils in a row like that (1873-1876).


somewhat similar to 2012, the final sixteen days of April 2020 all had colder than normal temps. when was the last time (if there was a last time) any calendar month ended with at least sixteen days of colder than normal temps?

The last 16 days of April 2020 mean temperatures were below normal!
