April 2014

April gave us a very dry and warm month with only 9 days of measurable rain totaling in at 14.5mm, extending our hot and dry spring. The ground has been continually dry and cracked even after light spells of rain. Traditionally, April can have a very variable rainfall pattern ranging from totals of 1mm to 100mm of rain!
Our maximum air temperature was 21.2 on the 21st, but on average the maximum was 16.4 degrees and the minimum average was 6.4 degrees.

There was risk of frost throughout the whole month. We had 6 light ground frosts in total and one light air frost.
