After weeks of dry weather we have rain at last today - it was good to see a 'soft' day! The plants have been crying out for it, and it will put out the remains of the wildfires.

April was hottest on record in some parts, we recorded 20.5 degrees C on 10th April, with night time temperatures at the beginning and end of the month below 3 degrees C.

April's weather data can be downloaded here or from the link on the right of this blog.

There is an excellent monthly report from Met √Čireann which can be seen here
