April 2021 – East west split in temperatures

For a change the warmest places in IONA were in the extreme west of Ireland. There was yet another night with air frost across sheltered parts of the country, although not quite as severe as previous nights, nonetheless another one to add to the burgeoning total for April. The graph below shows what a difference sea temperatures and the prevailing wind direction can make to mean temperatures in any spring month in IONA. Valentia and Weybourne are not too dissimilar when compared to their latitude, but are 3.3°C apart when compared to their mean temperature this April.
