April was close to average in regards to temperature. Rainfall however was well below average as Atlantic driven weather came to abrupt halt as high pressure took up residence close to the UK before in the final weeks building to the north of the UK. The weather was generally very quiet and although we had some sunny days a cooler injection of air in the last week brought the day time temperatures back towards normal although for the majority of the month it was the day time temperatures keeping the month above normal in keeping with previous months. The first few days were the coldest of the month as we held onto the cold air from the end of March. These brought the coldest nights as air frosts occurred in the first three days with the coldest night being -1C being recorded on the 2nd. The 3rd came close with -0.9C while the first dropped to -0.5c. The 1st had the coldest day when 7.7C was the high. Temperatures recovered to double figures by the 4th and apart from a two hiccups on the 7th and 9th stayed that way until the end of the month. Despite this wasn't until the 15th that temperatures reached the averages values expected for the time of year. A slow rise of the average continued up to the 24th when the month was a degree above normal. Cooler air arrived for the last seven days taking the average back towards normal. The warmest part of the month was from the 13th to the 22nd where temperatures were in the upper teens breaking the 20C degree on the mark on the 16th when 20.7C was reached. The 15th 20C was reached. Surprisingly this wasn't the period where the warmest night was recorded which was on the 5th with 8.6C and then 8.4C on the 6th. After the 16th the 20 degree mark wasn't reached but days remained pleasant and warm until the north sea cloud arrive don the 23rd brining an abrupt halt of pleasant warm sunny days. Cooler air followed with temperatures back down to the normal values expected for the time of year for the final few days. The rainfall was well below average but with enough rain falling in the first 7 days to stop the month making the top ten driest on record. The 6th saw the wettest day with 11.1mm of rain falling. The next day say the next highest amount as sleet recorded 3.9mm of rain. After that only three days saw measurable rain these being on the 11th and 12th and then the 17th. These days producing a total of 6.2mm. The month last day of the month produced the 1st measurable rainfall for 13 days when 3.5mm fell. The month managed too see Snow fall on two days matching both January and February. Sleet fell on two days on the 7th and 8th. However none of the snow managed to lie although it managed it on the moors nearby. The presence of the high pressure didn't stop a few windy days happening. Winds gusted up 40's on three days and an average of 13mph force 4 was recorded on the 9th at the time of measurement. However the trend to general less stormy weather is still there. May looks start on a unsettled note with the first rain for a while this rain quickly dying away then a week of sunny spells temperatures close to or just above average at first rising later, with some lights showers around but still plenty of dry weather. By the 2nd weekend more widespread showers and a push of cooler air from the north with a development of a north westerly air flow. The air flow will bring showers from time to time but still plenty of dry weather with sunny spells. Temperatures around average or slightly below. Middle of the second week there are indications of a more organised system so a wet spell of weather and breezy. The unsettled weather lasting into mid month showers or longer spells of rain. After mid month the weather turns more settled again as high pressure establishes itself close to the UK. So a dry spell of weather with warm days but chilly nights. Overall the month is likely to see close to normal temperatures. Rainfall also just below average as well.
