Burlington, Vermont's Hottest April Night On Record

Some early season Lake Champlain beach goers in April, 2011.
I didn't go to the beach yesterday, but I bet I would have found
similar scenes amid summer like weather.
If Thursday night and very early Friday morning seemed a bit like a stuffy summer night to you, that's because it was.

The low temperature Friday in Burlington, Vermont. (12:01 a.m. to 12 p.m.) was 64 degrees. That was the warmest low temperature for any April day ever, since 1884.

Montpelier and St. Johnsbury set records for highest low temperature for the date but not for the entire month Friday. with lows of 58 and 60 degrees, respectively.

We did miss the record high for the date, since it reach "just" 81 degrees on Friday. The record high Friday was 90 degrees, set in 1990.

I have to say the warm weather really had an effect on the landscape. The Green Mountains of Vermont are definitely turning green now.

Don't get too used to this summer like weather. True, it's pretty warm today with lots of 70s being reported.

However, next week will be wetter, and turn colder, especially toward the end of the week. Tomorrow- Sunday - looks comparatively chilly as well, with mostly 50s expected for highs.

Summer will return, though.
