Where did the sun go?

As we say so long to the month of April and hello to the month of May, you have all noticed that we did not receive many sunny days in April.  Actually, we haven’t really seen our share of sunny days since the start of 2011.  Digging into our climatology records for the past four months, we have had only nine sunny days.  What we define as sunny days is when only 0, 10, 20 or 30% of clouds obscure the sky.  Anything more than that is defined as partly sunny or partly cloudy, which we have had a total of 49 days of that condition.  Unfortunately, we have been under a mostly cloudy to overcast sky for a total of 62 days.  The good news is it was not all at once.  However, when looking at the month of March, well that is just sad. 

Now to make everyone feel better about not seeing the sunshine, let us look at Dickinson, North Dakota who is under a blizzard warning until later tonight.  Having snow on the ground for the first day of May is pretty bad.
