Easter weather history

The actual date of Easter Sunday varies from year-to-year. Sometimes it’s in March, sometimes it’s in April. That can mean some very different weather for the Easter holiday. But, no matter the date, if we’re looking at climate data for Easter Sunday, we’ve seen temperatures in the 60s and 70s over the past 5 years in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.

Last year was a wet Easter, with more than 0.5″ of rain falling in Fort Wayne. This year may be another wet Easter as a cold front crosses our area during the first half of the day. Temperatures are on track to reach the lower 70s during the afternoon, which would still be about 10° for this time of April, but would be in the middle of the pack as far as Easter weather is concerned. In case you’re wondering about the warmest Easter we’ve ever had, that occurred back on April 18, 1976 – we made it to 83° that year!
