Great Barrington — Wet and warm was the best description of April’s weather this year.

The month turned out to be the eighth warmest and eighth wettest since the beginning of my weather keeping in 1965.

The mean temperature of 48 was about 2 degrees warmer than average. The day’s low temperature showed only six of the 30 days at 32 or lower.

April is generally a wet month, but this April turned out to be much wetter, with 2 inches more than average. The 1 inch of snow was below the 2.4-inch average.

Hopefully, May will be a little warmer and drier.
