Here is a sample of what we can expect over the next month or so...
|Apr 1-6||Snow showers, cold|
|Apr 7-12||Sunny, turning mild|
|Apr 13-16||A few showers, warm|
|Apr 17-20||Sunny, cool|
|Apr 21-24||Rainy east, sunny west; cool|
|Apr 25-30||Rainy periods, cool|
|April||temperature 5°C (avg.)|
precipitation 40mm (20mm below avg. east, avg. west)
In all an average April, with the Farmer's Almanac touting the following for the rest of the lawn-care season.
April and May will be a bit cooler than normal, with near-normal precipitation. Summer will be hotter than normal, with rainfall below normal in Southwest Ontario and above normal elsewhere. The hottest periods will be in early and late June, early July, and mid- to late August. September and October will be warmer and slightly drier than normal.
Not ideal but...
As long as I'm not trudging through soggy slop, or watching lawns whither and die in a crispy golden brown, I'm a happy camper.
So here's hoping with fingers crossed.
