Spring has arrived and so far, we can say that it has been a pleasant spring. My latest UK weather tracker shows that it was the 5th warmest April since 1910.
As always, the meteorological year starts in December which is why April appears as the 5th data point in the charts below. More information on the layout of the charts can be found in this post.
April turned out to be a dry month by the standards of the British weather. It rained only 1 in 4 days which puts this year close to the historical lower decile. Even when it rained, the intensity was in fact the 3rd lowest since records began in 1961.
Next month tends to be the driest month of the year. Enjoy it!
