April’s famous showers were few and far between in New York City this year. We only collected 1.31 inches of rain, which is 3.19 inches below normal. This makes April 2013 the city’s fourth driest April on record.
Bouncing up and down throughout the month, temperatures in the city felt like they were on a roller-coaster. One day even brought the Big Apple a taste of summer with a high reading of 82°F. Despite these extremes, the city finished the month with an average temperature of 53°F. That is neither warmer nor colder than normal.
