April 2022: Warmer and wetter than normal

ORLANDO, Fla. – April tends to be a very transitional time of the year across Central Florida, as fronts that arrive become weaker.

This in turn results in more rainy days and limited cool downs. And that was certainly the case for April 2022.

When averaging out those numbers over the four weeks, monthly averages warmed about 1-2 degrees above normal across east Central Florida.
