A Tale of Two Aprils
April was wet in West Virginia, but dry in New England.
West Virginia and New England had polar opposite Aprils. The southwest part of the region saw more than 150 percent of normal precipitation, while the northeast part of the region saw less than 90 percent of normal. For the areas sandwiched in between, precipitation ranged from 25 percent of normal to 200 percent of normal.
While West Virginia was warm, New England was cold.
The two corners of the region were at odds in terms of temperature, as well. While West Virginia was warmer than normal, New England was colder than normal. The rest of the Northeast generally saw temperatures within 2 degrees of normal. There was one thing most of the region did have in common, though: a lack of snow.
