AVERAGE APRIL TEMPERATURES IN LONDON
Daylight hours continue to increase rapidly this month gaining almost 2 extra hours between the 1st and the 30th.
Daytime high temperatures tend to be about 12 C (in mid-50s F) early in April.
However, things warm to about 5-16 C (60 F) by the end of the month with a few afternoons seeing temperatures at or above 21 c (70 F).
Late night and early mornings tend to remain cool early in April, averaging near 4-5C (40F) with a few colder mornings dipping to near 32F (0C).
Towards the end of April, mornings will mostly be 7-8C (in the mid-40s F).
About 13-14 days will have either sunny or at least partly sunny skies while 18-19 days will record some rainfall with one of these days reporting snow.
Accumulating snow is rare.
April winds are mostly light to moderate but occasionally can be fresh at 20-24 MPH (31-38 KPH).
April is changeable so it is best to bring rain gear and a warm coat or jacket for those cooler mornings and evenings.
Also bring some lighter springtime attire for those warmer afternoons, especially if you're visiting later in the month.
A pair or two of good walking shoes are also a must so you can enjoy all of our walking tours!
