At several weather stations in the south and west the month's coldest temperatures were not measured until the night of April 29.

As a whole April was nevertheless warmer than usual in much of the country, according to the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI).

The average temperature varied from minus 3 degrees Celsius in the northwest Arm of Finland to nearly +5 degrees on the South Coast.

The highest temperature for the month, 18.0 degrees, was measured on three different days: on the 17th in Kaarina, the 18th in Rauma and Pori, and on the 19th in Seinäjoki.

The lowest temperature, minus 25.9 degrees, was measured on the 9th at the Kilpisjärvi village centre weather station in Enontekiö.

At the end of the month there was no snow in southern and central areas. In most of the north of Finland there was still 20–40 centimetres of snow. At Kenttärova in Kittilä, as much as 83 centimetres.
