More on April
As Corey noted in the April summary, this was 13th warmest April of record. This was mostly due to the persistence mild weather, with the warmth mid-month being the only really outstanding daily anomaly. Here's a plot of daily high temperatures in April, normals and the daily departure from normal. From the 18th through the 29th there was hardly any daily to day change in the actual high temperature. However, because normals are rising steadily, overall the departure from normal lowered with time.
