1. For the first time since weather records began at Rapid City, SD in 1888, there were no occurrences in a winter season with a temperature falling below 0 F. With the latest date ever for a winter sub-zero reading (April 3, 1936) having passed and no cold air in the extended forecast, it will likely be next winter before a sub-zero temperature will be observed. As of April 5th, it has been a record 456 days since the last such occurrence on January 4, 1999.

2. Goodland, KA set a record on April 15 for the coldest maximum temperature for the date with a 29 degrees reading. The previous record, 32 degrees, was set in 1945. Just 1 day earlier, the station tied its record for the warmest April 14 temperature with a reading of 86 degrees.
