April Temps + Winds

Posted: 18 Apr 2016 05:38 AM

Outside of having breezy conditions again, temperatures this past weekend were spectacular with highs well into the 70s and even some lower 80s in the state. The featured chart displays the frequency of having a 10+ knot wind speed reported at a given temperature in April. If you want the warm temperatures we experienced this past weekend, then you'll have to take the breezy conditions as well. The windy conditions are what help to drive the warm temperatures by transporting warmer air into the state and mixing down warmer air from above in the lower atmosphere.

Good = 9
Bad = 0
Abstain = 1
