THE SECOND WETTEST APRIL ON RECORD WITH AN ABUNDANT 13.36 INCHES.
APRIL OF 1991 REMAINS THE WETTEST APRIL ON RECORD WITH 21.84 INCHES
THAT ALSO CONTRIBUTED TO SHREVEPORT`S ALL TIME WETTEST YEAR OF
RECORD AS WELL DURING 1991.

SHREVEPORT OBSERVED ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES DURING APRIL AS WELL
AND CONTINUED A STREAK OF ABOVE NORMAL MONTHLY TEMPERATURES

WITH SUCH A RAINY MONTH...SHREVEPORT BROKE TWO DAILY RAINFALL
RECORDS DURING APRIL.  DURING APRIL 18...THE DAY TALLIED 6.03 INCHES
AND BROKE THE PREVIOUS DAILY RAINFALL RECORD OF 1.49 INCHES SET
DURING 1882.  AT MONTH`S END DURING APRIL 30TH...SHREVEPORT TALLIED
ANOTHER 2.20 INCHES AND BROKE THE PREVIOUS DAILY RECORD OF 2.15
INCHES DURING 1970.

THUS FAR DURING THE METEOROLOGICAL SPRINGTIME (METEOROLOGICAL SPRING
IS MARCH 1 THROUGH MAY 31) OF 2015 THROUGH MAY 3RD OF
2016...SHREVEPORT HAS TALLIED 27.36 INCHES OF RAINFALL SINCE MARCH
1ST.  THIS TOTAL RANKS AS THE SECOND WETTEST SPRING.  THE ALL TIME
WETTEST SPRING REMAINS THE NOTORIOUS SPRINGTIME OF 1991 WITH 35.44
INCHES.

WITH SUCH HEAVY RAINFALL DURING THIS APRIL...WE OBSERVED PLENTY OF
FLOODING.  AT MONTH`S END...THE RED RIVER WAS RISING TOWARD FLOOD
STAGE YET AGAIN...FOR THE FIFTH TIME SINCE JUNE OF 2015...A FEAT
NEVER OBSERVED SINCE 1849.
