REMARKS...

MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION WAS RATHER SPARSE FOR MUCH OF THE
MONTH...BUT THE LAST FEW DAYS BROUGHT HEAVY RAINS AND PUSHED THE
MONTHS TOTAL TO CLOSE TO NORMAL. A STRONG COLD FRONT PASSED EARLY IN
THE MORNING OF APRIL 11...WITH TEMPERATURES LATE THAT AFTERNOON
AROUND 40 DEGREES COLDER THAN THOSE ON THE 10TH.
