April was wetter than the average

A DRY spell of 12 days, followed by above average rainfall, made April significantly wetter than usual.

Steeple Ashton-based amateur weatherman Geoff Witts recorded no rain at all from April 8 to 19, but downpours at the end of the month made it wetter than the previous 64-year average.

The warmest temperature of 19.8 degrees was recorded on April 21, only three days after the thermometer dropped to 0.9 degrees.
