0.5" of snow accumulated, the second latest date on record, following 4/25 in 1875 (when three inches fell). Despite the snow, the temperature got no lower than 34° (similar to 4/25/75).
This was the second cold day in a row, with temperatures that were more typical of the first week of March. Today's high/low of 44°/31° followed yesterday's 42°/32°. Both morning lows were records (which still stand). These were the coldest days of the month.
The 0.03" of rain that fell today, following yesterday's 0.82", duplicated the rainfall of 4/19 (0.82") and 4/20 (0.03").
After soaring to 87° in the early afternoon (the warmest reading of the month), a cold front moved through, and by midnight the temperature had fallen to 52°. The colder air was made even chiller by winds gusting between 30-40 mph. This was the third day in a row with 80-degree temperatures, and today's high was the warmest in more than eight months (since Aug. 9). It was also the warmest reading in April in ten years.
With a high of 80° (sixteen degrees above average), this was the warmest Easter Sunday since 1976 (when the high was a sizzling 96!). However, showers between 6-9 PM put somewhat of a damper on the day. The 0.50" of rain that fell was the most on Easter Sunday since 1996.
