COOLER AND SLIGHTLY MORE SNOW THAN NORMAL

THIS MONTH CONTAINED UPS AND DOWNS AS FAR AS TEMPERATURE GOES, BUT
DESPITE A PLEASANT WARM UP BETWEEN THE 21ST AND THE 24TH, THE MONTH
STILL FINISHED BELOW NORMAL FOR MEAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES. DUE TO
THE AFOREMENTIONED LATER MONTH WARM UP, THE GROWING SEASON STARTED
IN THE AREA AND A FREEZE WARNING WAS ISSUED FOR THE MORNING OF THE
27TH WITH A LOW TEMPERATURES OF 27 DEGREES RECORDED, ONE DEGREE
ABOVE THE RECORD LOW FOR THAT DATE.

SOUTH BEND HAD A SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL APRIL WHEN IT COMES TO
SNOWFALL. BUT THAT ISN`T SAYING MUCH SINCE THE NORMAL IS JUST 1.0
INCHES. THERE WERE TWO DAYS OF MEASUREABLE SNOW THIS MONTH
WITH 1.0 INCHES ON THE 1ST AND 0.2 INCHES ON THE 19TH.
