April weather cooled as usual, except that the second week was rather cooler, by day and by night. There were no frosts.
Most days had little cloud. There were six rain days (usually four), with the highest reading 17.4 mm on the 11th.
Mean temperatures were close to average. It was a very sunny month, with only 20% cloudy mornings (>4/8 cloud). April 2005 had been even sunnier, with only one cloudy morning.
The rainfall of 31.6 mm is on the 50th percentile for April: it is on the median – half of all Aprils have been wetter and half have been drier – but below the long-term average (39.3 mm). Rainfall totals for 5, 6, 9, and 12 months remain very high: above the 70th percentile.
