A wet day in April

On Friday, April 3rd we recorded 26.2 mm of precipitation, as per station policy we won't comment on that a being a "record" for the day, but it was the second most April precipitation we have seen in the little over ten years of records at the UW weather station.

The only wetter April day was back in 2006 on the 23rd.

This year the "day's" total precipitation was helped out by the fact that the entire storm occurred during the 24 hours that made up the 3rd.

Also notable was that the temperature dropped almost 7 degrees in the span of about 2 hours, not to mention the crazy winds that came in after the rain.
