I enjoy looking at statistics. For the month of April the Cape Girardeau airport has had 4 days 80° or higher. (In fact, we are on a 4 day consecutive 80° or higher streak.) There have been 10 days 75° or higher. Needless to say, if you have though this month has started out "warm" you are correct.
Here is a look at some regional stats for the month of April:
- Cape Girardeau, Mo is 8.1° above normal per day.
- Carbonadle, Il is 12.0° above normal per day.
- Poplar Bluff, Mo is 8.3° above normal per day.
- Paducah, Ky is 8.6° above normal per day.
I am a firm believe that things find a way of evening out. Maybe if we stay warm for another month we will be lucky and get a below normal summer. I'd be for that!
