April was, predictably, a changeable month. It began badly with Bank Holiday Monday (2nd) having cold SE winds, sleet and a maximum temperature of only 3.7C. Thankfully things got better and the average daily maximum temperature was 13.2C which is close the the April norm. There were only 3 air frosts, the coldest night being on the 5th with -1.8C. There were some pleasantly warm sunny days from the 18th to the 21st with the maximum temperature for the month on the 21st at 22.2C, the warmest April day since 2011.

The total rainfall for April was 60.6mm, which is slightly above the April average. Although 20 days had a measurable amount of rain, only 10 days had more than 2mm. The wettest days were the 4th and 10th with 10mm each. There was thunder on the 22nd following a few warm days but in Scotby there was little display of lightening and only 5.6mm of rain.
