Two days after the temperature soared into the 90s, it did so again today. But after reaching 92° shortly before 4:30 (one degree hotter than 4/25), a cold front moved through a few hours later and the temperature dropped to 54° by midnight (similar to what happened two days ago.)
In a span of 13 hours the temperature soared from 51° at 1 AM to 91° by 2 PM.
Just like 1962, the day's temperature soared from 51° to 91°. This was the earliest date for a year's first 90-degree reading since 1977 (when it occurred on 4/12).
0.41" of rain fell during a twenty-minute thunderstorm later in the afternoon (4:27-4:47 PM). After a cool start (low of 50°), it turned into a warm day as the high reached 82°.
2.07" of rain, a record for the date, brought April's rainfall total to 13.05". This was a morning rainfall, with a little more than half of the amount pouring down between 3:00 and 5:00 AM.
