RICHMOND, Va. -- High temperatures reached near 80° on Saturday.  A cold front passed through Sunday morning, bringing in colder air behind it.

It was a cold start to the first day of April. Daybreak lows on Monday were in the mid 20s to lower 30s, and the breeze made it feel even colder.  The normal low is in the lower 40s.

Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the 50s, but warmer weather will return for the middle and end of the week.

During the month of April, our normal high reaches into the low and mid 70s by the end of the month.  The normal low rises to 50°.

A typical April produces a little over three inches of rainfall, and we gain over an hour of additional daylight.

The outlook for the month ahead is for temperatures to average out above normal.  We finished March a little over one degree below normal.

Rainfall looks to be right around normal for the month, although some above normal rainfall is possible in southeastern Virginia.
