Through April 14th:
2.44" rain, 0.88" above normal.
Average High So Far This April= 57, Normal High=64.
I was digging into the Climate books and found that through April 14th, half of our April days have had rain. We had 7 days of recorded rainfall at Lambert International Airport this April so far with a total of 2.44" of rain.
Also, it's been rather chilly. We've had 11 of 14 days at or below normal. The average high temperature for the month so far is about 57, which is 7 degrees below normal.
While we will have a warmer and dry pattern the rest of this week (near 70 on Friday!) we do see rain chances for the weekend and colder air returning Monday. We're just stuck in this pattern with Low pressure systems rolling out of the Rockies every few days or so, bringing the rain and then cooler air.
