...WARMEST APRIL ON RECORD PLUS THE 5TH WETTEST...

The month of April was another warm one at the Juneau International
Airport. The average temperature for the month was 44.9 degrees beating
the previous record of 44.4 set in 1993. The airport also broke the
record for warmest minimum temperature with 38.6 degrees averaged. This
breaks the previous record of 36.9 set in 1941. The fact that we had 8
days with record high minimum temperatures helped with these two warm
records.

The warmest day in April was the 22nd with 61 degrees and the coldest
temperature occurred on the 20th with a cool 30 degrees.

This was the 5th wettest April on record with a total rainfall of 5.16
inches. That is 2.22 inches above normal. The most rain fell on the
17th with 0.89 inches. There was no snow in April but Juneau did have ice
pellets on the 30th.

Winds for the month were primarily from the southeast with an average
speed of 8 mph. The highest wind speed occurred on the 30th with a peak
wind of 40 mph from the southeast.
