Snowy, calm April 2012

 Snowfall continued through the final week of April, bringing total accumulation to 44 cm. This is the most snow for any April since our records began in 2000. Humidity was high, incoming solar radiation was low, and April 2012 established a new record for the lowest mean monthly wind speed, at only 10.2 km/hr! All monthly values are provided here.
