Anything goes in April

A look at the many facets of this month's weather across the Northern Hemisphere

by

    April is a month of extremes. Situated in the middle of spring, the sun is rising high enough in the sky to be quite a potent force and the land is warming at an accelerating rate.

    At the same time, sea temperatures are at their lowest, responding much more slowly to the warming action of the sun. This contrast between land and sea temperatures can see the weather see-sawing between warm, sunny weather and snowstorms and heavy showers.

    Our gallery shows the wide variation in weather conditions experienced in just the first week of the month.
