WNY had its fair share of April showers


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The old adage says, “April showers bring May flowers.” So when it’s wet in April, no one is surprised.

But Western New York ended up receiving more than five inches of rainfall in April, which is a full two inches above average and the sixth wettest on record.

Other than that, April was pretty much on par.

There were 16 days with rain, which is only two above average. The average temperature was .1 degree below average and it was actually warmer than 2012, which was the year of the “early spring.”

WNY was below average for snowfall with only 1.2 inches. That last snowfall was April 15, one day after the average last date for snow.

It’s pretty safe to say WNY won’t see any more snow this season. Officially, 2013/2014 will end up as the seventh snowiest.
