Here’s a look at the coldest Aprils we’ve ever had in West Michigan. At this point, 2018 is at the top of the list…by a LOT.
In fact, so far, February of 2017 with an average temperature of 34.7° was actually warmer than April has been so far!
Keep in mind we will shift to a warmer pattern next weekend and average temperatures will go up…so our 34.3° will go higher.
The latest 6-10 day temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center continues to give us a little (not a lot like now) colder than average temperatures for the period April 22-26. While it won’t be warm by April standards, just getting temperatures back to the average low 60s by Sunday will make it feel like spring.
