April 2014 Cool and Wet in Providence Area

The bad news is April 2014 is in the books as the sixth straight cooler than normal month in Southern New England. The good news is it was the closest to normal of the past six months. The month ended with two very cool days, and that was enough to push the average temperature to 0.6° below normal for the month.
