April 2013 Weather Statistics – Watford

Summary for April 2013

April across CET Central England Temperature area was another in the series of below average months this year coming in at 7.4c (-1.1c)* Its been a sunny month but as the wind has been blowing in a easterly direction it has produced cool weather depressing the temperature at times. 

There was a mini pulse of warm weather around the 25th which gave the highest temperature of the year of 22.9c. Spring growth has been held back this year due to the cold and has only sprung into life in the last week of the month.

Blossom arriving last week of the month.

Looking ahead it looks like more of the same with a blocking pattern of high pressure migrating from Scandinavia to the Atlantic producing easterly or northerly winds. Although high pressure will be quite close by producing less rain for the month but with warm pulses of air from the east / SE as the continent warms up. Any easterly winds coming across the North sea will depress the temperatures as the sea is colder than normal  after a colder than average winter / spring.
