A warm month, mean temperature 11.4C, 2.7 degrees above normal, making it the 3rd highest in 65 years here (beaten in 2011 and 2007). Maximum temperatures exceeded 20C from 7th 12th,  16th-17th and 22nd-26th. Just one airfrost on 14th with temperature dropping to 1.4C.

Rainfall only 41.0mm (similar to March), 66% of normal, ranking 23rd driest in 65 years. Wettest days were 12th, then 28th 30th .  
No rain fell 4th-6th, 8th-12th, 14th-16th or 19th-25th.

Sunniest spells were 19th-27th, and mostly sunny 6th-11th and 14th-16th.
Windy 12th-13th and 20th-21st.

Consequently, being warmer and with less rain, the soil (still dry from March) remained dry for the month and more watering of crops than usual was required!
