THE WARM, SPRING-LIKE WEATHER THAT FINALLY ARRIVED AT THE END OF
MARCH MADE A QUICK EXIT ONCE APRIL CAME AROUND. SEVERAL BACK TO BACK
TROUGHS OF LOW PRESSURE BROUGHT COLD AIR IN FROM CANADA, WITH THE
APRIL SUN TRIGGERING AFTERNOON RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS. ALTHOUGH
SEVERAL DAYS OBSERVED SNOW, IT DID NOT ACCUMULATE. AFTER A BRIEF
WARM UP BROUGHT 60 DEGREE WARMTH, MORE COLD AIR POURED IN FOR MID
APRIL. THE COLDEST DAY WAS APRIL 15 WHEN SNOW, SLEET, AND FREEZING
RAIN FELL DURING THE DAY, WITH THE TEMPERATURE NOT WARMING ABOVE 36
DEGREES. HEAVY RAIN MOVED IN THE FOLLOWING DAY AS TEMPERATURES
WARMED JUST A BIT, BUT STAYED BELOW NORMAL. WARMER WEATHER FINALLY
ARRIVED FOR THE END OF APRIL, WHEN 7 OUT OF 8 DAYS TOPPED 60 DEGREES
FROM THE 21ST THRU 28TH, INCLUDING A FEW IN THE 70S.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 45.6 DEGREES WHICH WAS 1.7
DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THE TEMPERATURE RANGED FROM 25 ON THE 6TH TO
74 ON THE 24TH. A TOTAL OF 4.01 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL WHICH
WAS 0.15 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL. ALTHOUGH SNOW WAS OBSERVED ON 7 DAYS,
IT DID NOT ACCUMULATE.

HISTORICAL RECORDS AT MANCHESTER ARE NOT PROVIDED DUE TO NUMEROUS
MISSING YEARS WITHIN THE HISTORICAL RECORD. ALTHOUGH THE EARLIEST
DATA AVAILABLE IS IN 1885, THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT GAPS IN THE DATA. A
LOCAL STUDY HAS YET TO BE COMPLETED TO DETERMINE IF MEANINGFUL
INFORMATION ON EXTREME TEMPERATURE, PRECIPITATION, OR SNOWFALL CAN
BE REPORTED.
