April - Hobart, Tasmania

A very dry month with a mean temperature anomaly of +0.7c above 1991-2020 or +0.6c above 1961-1990. This month included the hottest April day on record ( 3rd ).

Mean maximum:  18.5  ( +0.6 )

Mean minimum:  10.1  ( +0.7 )

Rainfall:  24mm  ( average 50mm )

Rain days ( +1mm ) :  6/from total 11

Hot and sunny ( 1st-3rd ) with a central Australia air mass drawn south from strong high pressure over east Australia. The 2nd was temporarily cooler behind a weak dry front.  Dry weather continued up to the 9th in a mild to warm westerly wind but then progressively colder in the days that followed, with successive fronts and lowering snowfalls. Snow settling 800m on the 11th.  Less cold up to 19th but occasional fronts from the west bringing a shower or two. A dusting of snow to 1100m on the morning of the 16th. The 20th was a very cold day - the coldest April day since 1995 - behind a southerly front with a few showers. Snow settling 800m. A cold and clear night followed with frost away from the coast. The extreme minimum that night was -7.4c in central Tasmania. Only a couple of showers after this, then dry from the 22nd-30th as high pressure dominated across southern Australia.

At Heathrow it was the 7th coldest, 7th driest and 7th sunniest April on record! The sunshine hours are estimated values rather than the raw figures, based on the station receiving 133% of its average sunshine.

Yes, using the raw values. To get the true CS value you have to apply a correction to that number, and that is true with all sunshine recordings taken at that station since September 2005. The sunshine values I requested from the Met Office via a FOI request have already been corrected.

I originally asked them for sunshine data from Kew Gardens for the 2006-2020 period, but since Kew no longer records sun they sent me the corrected Heathrow sunshine values instead. I compared them to the values on the historic data page and there seems to be the following correction made to get the actual value per month:

Jan: 1.08

Feb: 1.08

Mar: 1.08

Apr: 1.09

May: 1.12

Jun: 1.14

Jul: 1.13

Aug: 1.12

Sep: 1.10

Oct: 1.09

Nov: 1.08

Dec: 1.07

Where the raw value is multiplied by that number to get the corrected sunshine total.

 This link shows that Heathrow recorded 133% of it's 81-10 April average (that being 168.7 hours). 133% of 168.7 is 224.4.
