WINTER-LIKE CONDITIONS CONTINUED INTO THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF
METEOROLOGICAL SPRING. A SNOWSTORM ON MARCH 3 AND 4 BROUGHT 5.8
INCHES OF SNOW. COLDER AIR POURED IN BEHIND THE STORM. CONCORD SPENT
THE NEXT 3 DAYS BELOW FREEZING WITH LOW TEMPERATURES BELOW ZERO.
ALTHOUGH MORE LIGHT SNOW CAME A FEW DAYS LATER, BUT MORE MILD
CONDITIONS WERE ON THE WAY. GRADUALLY THE WARMER WEATHER AND SOME
LIGHT RAIN MELTED THE LAST OF THE WINTER SNOW PACK BY THE MORNING OF
APRIL 1. THE LAST MEASURABLE SNOWFALL OF THE SEASON CAME ON APRIL 9
WHEN 0.3 INCHES FELL. WARMER WEATHER DOMINATED THE MIDDLE OF APRIL
ALTHOUGH IT WAS FREQUENTLY RAINY. THE WARMEST TEMPERATURE WAS 80
DEGREES ON APRIL 19, THE FIRST OF 4 STRAIGHT DAYS ABOVE 70. A COLD
FRONT BROUGHT SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON APRIL 26 AND 27 AND A
RETURN TO COOLER WEATHER. THE NEW WEATHER PATTERN THAT WAS EMERGING
WAS A BATTLE BETWEEN BUILDING WARMTH IN THE SOUTHEAST US AND
LINGERING COLD IN CANADA. WITH THE JET STREAM BETWEEN THESE AIR
MASSES NEARBY, QUICK-MOVING STORM SYSTEMS WOULD BRING FREQUENT
SHOWERS. RAIN FELL ON 16 OUT OF 17 DAYS FROM APRIL 18 TO MAY 4.
AFTER A FEW BRIEF DAYS OF MILD TEMPERATURES, COOLER AIR MOVED IN
AGAIN IN THE MIDDLE OF MAY. THE LAST FREEZE OF THE SEASON WAS ON MAY
9, A FEW DAYS EARLIER THAN NORMAL. SOME WARMER AIR MOVED INTO THE
REGION FROM THE SOUTHWEST DURING THE LAST HALF OF MAY. THE
TEMPERATURE TOPPED 70 DEGREES 11 TIMES WITH THE WARMEST DAY BEING ON
MAY 26 WHEN IT REACHED 85 DEGREES. THEN A COLD FRONT BROUGHT A
RETURN TO COOL CONDITIONS. OVERALL THE SPRING WAS REMEMBERED FOR
BEING CLOUDY AND COOL WITH FREQUENT PRECIPITATION. ALTHOUGH
PRECIPITATION WAS SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL, THE 42 DAYS OF MEASURABLE
PRECIPITATION GAVE IT A RAINY REPUTATION.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE SPRING WAS 43.8 DEGREES WHICH WAS
0.9 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL AND THE COOLEST SPRING SINCE 2014. THE
COOLEST SPRING WAS IN 1956 WHEN IT WAS 38.7 DEGREES. THE WARMEST WAS
49.7 DEGREES IN 2012.

A TOTAL OF 9.87 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL WHICH WAS 0.47 INCHES
BELOW NORMAL. THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION WAS ON APRIL 26 AND 27 WHEN
1.79 INCHES OF RAIN FELL. THE DRIEST SPRING WAS IN 1915 WHEN ONLY
3.61 INCHES WAS RECORDED. THE WETTEST WAS IN 1983 WHEN 18.14 INCHES
WAS MEASURED.

THERE WAS 9.2 INCHES OF SNOWFALL WHICH WAS 4.7 INCHES BELOW NORMAL.
THE HEAVIEST SNOW WAS ON MARCH 3 AND 4 WHEN 5.8 INCHES FELL. THE
SNOWIEST SPRING WAS IN 1956 WHEN 48.2 INCHES FELL. THE LEAST SNOWY
WAS IN 2010 WHEN ONLY A TRACE OF SNOW WAS OBSERVED.

SNOWFALL FOR THE 2018-19 SEASON TOTALED 52.8 INCHES WHICH WAS 8.6
INCHES BELOW NORMAL. THE HEAVIEST SNOW THIS SEASON CAME ON NOVEMBER
19 AND 20 WHEN 6.8 INCHES OF SNOW WAS RECORDED. THE SNOWIEST SEASON
ON RECORD WAS IN 1873-74 WHEN 122.0 INCHES OF SNOW FELL. THE LEAST
SNOWY SEASON WAS IN 1979-80 WHEN ONLY 27.0 INCHES FELL.

THE FOLLOWING DAILY RECORDS WERE SET OR TIED IN SPRING 2019...
