Bill Danielson Weather Report for the month of April

For lovers of spring, the best thing about April 2022 on Chebeague was that it didn’t snow. On the other hand, the month was wetter, windier and chillier than “normal.” Rainfall totalled 5.7 inches, and winds gusted to 25 mph or higher on twelve different days, peaking at 41 mph on the 19th. The daily mean temperature, which normally increases 10 degrees during April (orange line on graph), rose only 2.5 degrees this April (purple line). The three warmest days occurred in the first half of the month; and then the weather cooled off once more. Let’s hear it for May!
