Nate Hulings of The Olympian reports:
“Olympia had its second-coldest April on record, and La Nia is to blame.
The average temperature in Olympia last month was 43.7 degrees, a mere tenth of a degree higher than the record set back in 1955, said Dennis DAmico, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service…
Heres some other April highlights (or lowlights):
The highest temperature was recorded April 23, when it hit 69 degrees; the low was April 8 at 25 degrees.
The average high temperature was 5.5 degrees below normal, making it the coldest April on record for high temperatures.
There were three days in April without precipitation.
As for May, DAmico said we could be in for more of the same. As La Nia loses its grip on the region, it takes a while for the atmosphere to react and weather will continue to stay in a cool, wet pattern, he said.”
