Washington DC - Recent April Temperatures and Rainfall





The numbers here describe what the April weather in Washington DC was like for every year since 2010. A series of tables gives April data by year for temperature and precipitation.

They begin with average maximum and minimum temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius. That's followed by how many cold or hot days occurred each April. Then there's information on how much rain actually landed this month during recent years, as well as how often Washington had wet weather.
