Will we break any records?
Forecast lows are expected to remain above record numbers for Wednesday/Thursday/Friday.
– Current record low for Youngstown on April 21 is 23° set in 2013 – Forecast low is 32°
– Current record low for Youngstown on April 22 is 20° set in 1975 – Forecast low is 27°
– Current record low for Youngstown on April 23 is 25° set in 1986 – Forecast low is 32°
We will challenge a “record-low high temperature” on Wednesday. The current record-low high temperature for that date is 37° set in 1978. The forecast high is 38°.
The best chance for some records this week will be in the snowfall expected. The chance for snow will increase into Wednesday morning and stay in the forecast through Thursday morning.
The daily snowfall records are below:
– April 21 = 0.5″ set in 1950
– April 22 = 0.3″ set in 2020
*Last year was snowy at this point of the month too. We picked up 0.2″ on the 21st and then 0.3″ on the 22nd.
Warmer temperatures will build in for the weekend.
