This is my first time :good:

I'm going for 7.8c I reckon there are going to be some chilly interludes - snow on the highest hills/mountains.

above average rainfall may be on the cards, time will tell.

Nice and fresh for the East, at least no oppressive weather like last week anyway.

You are kidding???? The chances of breaking 12c this April are zero, that's more likely to be the June CET!!!!!!

April 2011 was 11.8 and April 2007 was 11.2 so 12c is possible and I would say we will see it broken in my lifetime (that's another half century if I make my late eighties) Probably unlikely this year though judging by tonight's charts. I will wait another week to make my call but I'm thinking high 9s Edited by BlueSkies_do_I_see

With the lowest temp of the season being -7 ish and englands lowest of -6.8 on Monday it is easily possible for april to take the lowest temp since the lowest april temp is -15 deg and it is not an impossability that april could take the lowest cet of the extended winter....that would be some record in these times of extremes!
