NYC Monthly Summary: April 2015

Transitioning to spring, April 2015 felt like a weather rollercoaster in New York City. We had highs that ranged from a chilly 43°F to a balmy 80°F.  In the end, though, the warmth won out. The city’s mean temperature for the month was 54.3°F, which is 1.3°F above normal. That makes April the first month since December to produce an above average temperature in the Big Apple.

In terms of precipitation, April’s famous showers were scarce this year. The city received a mere 2.08 inches of rain in Central Park. Of this meager total, 1.37 inches fell in a single day. On average, NYC typically gets 4.5 inches of rain during the month of April.
