    NOAA has released it’s prediction for this month’s weather.  Most of the country is expected to have above normal temperatures which is a complete swing from April of 2018.  So the winter haters can rejoice.  I think we all get a bit tired of winter by this time of year, and any snowfall . . . . even flurries,  doesn’t set well with most people.  Yesterday was very chilly, but today’s high should reach normal levels.  By next weekend, we could see highs in the upper 60s to near 70.  I love it!

    Our 9:45 AM temp is 42°F (5°C), the humidity is 60% and skies are mostly cloudy.  Winds are from the south at 12 mph.  The pressure is 30.04 in and rising.  The dew point is 28°F (-2°C).  Visibility is 10 miles.  Yesterday’s high was 46°F (8°C) and the overnight low was 37°F (3°C).  Sunrise was at 7:17 AM and sunset will be at 8:03 PM.  Normals for this date are 49°F / 32°F.

    Wow! You know I’m well and fully entrenched in the ‘winter-haters’ column, so the thought of warmer than usual thrills me no end. Thanks for the perk to my spirits this morning :>)

    90% above normal? that seems a little far fetched.

    Yes it does, doesn’t it?  Unfortunately, many times when we have a very warm April, we have a cold May.

    streak of warmth.  Boston saw all 3 winter months above average 2 F.  Mar came in exactly normal   Apr is expected above avg.  There’s a good chance this summer will be warm and very humid like last summer.  Last summer was the most humid on record!….yet it was only somewhat wetter than avg.  Human ghgs are definitely influencing earth temperature.  The most prominent effect in the mid-latitude is during the warm season.
