It was very hot the first 15 days of April hitting 30 degrees every single day without a drop of rain.
On the sixteenth of April a cold front moved in and the high every day was plus 10 but there was still no rain until the final two days of the month when it just poured.
The meteorologist on the local TV station did his monthly wrap up on May 1st by announcing that April was a typical month with an average 20 degree temperature and 85 mm of rain.
I carried my unbrella with me most of the month but was awfully hot in my wool sweater for the first two weeks and a pretty chilly the last two. I forgot my unbrella the last two days of the month and got drenched.
Looking back at the averages though I have to agree that it was a pretty typical and predictable month of weather. Of course if it wasn't I could just go to annual weather averages which would give me more data points. With an average high annual temperature of 12 I would know a lot more about how to dress every morning when I got up.
