Kari's April 2020 My AcuRite Weather Recap

Here in Northern California, we had a rainy start to the month, which helps keep the surrounding hills and vegetation green! We love spring rainfall here.The more rain the better which helps the state regulate and minimize wildfire risk.  My AcuRite Atlas™  weather station reported a monthly rainfall total of 1.86 inches, which a storm brought in from April 4th to the 6th.  By comparing my weather data to the nearby official NWS weather data, I can see we received a bit more rain than last April. While both April 2019 and April 2020 started with some spring showers – the rainfall totals were about an inch higher in April 2020.  If we’re lucky, we’ll get one more storm with rainfall before the hot and dry summer sets in.

After this quick storm came through, the region saw a warming and drying trend, with a handful of days reaching above 80 degrees F.  The high occurred on the 28th, and reached 87 degrees F.  The nearby Livermore airport reported 88 degrees on that day, which is 16 degrees above the normal high of 72 degrees F.

I absolutely love this weather station! While in Florida this past winter I could monitor indoor temps in my Minnesota home. Now our marina is open and monitoring wind and rain are key. I can now plan ahead for higher winds. Just super!

That's great to hear, Don! Remote monitoring through the My AcuRite app, while relaxing in Florida! Lucky you :) I hope you have a great season at the marina this summer. Enjoy!

I’ve been an AcuRite user for 10 years and have been sharing my data on WU since February 2013. This past April in my back yard (Milton, DE) we had the second coolest April (51.8F) since I’ve kept records. It was the first April that we did not hit 80 degrees. The warmest day occurred on April 8 at 76F. Oddly the month before we hit a record high 85 degrees on March 20. It was the only day we hit 80 degrees for the month of March. Also, it was the highest March temperature that I ever recorded in the month of March. Rainfall was normal at about 3.96”. On April 13th severe storms impacted the area. 1.5” of rain was recorded with winds 23 mph recorded on that same day.
