The weather today is good don't get my wrong, but it is NOTHING to brag about in mid/late April. In a normal spring, 2 of those days would be considered ok/cool and 2 would be considered great spring days. Should I lower my expectations because we're having the worst, crappiest April in recorded history. Seems like I should, using you logic.
Breathe in, breathe out. Sometimes the weather is colder than normal, sometimes the opposite. It all balances out in the end.

Guys, he's passionate about the weather - nothing wrong with that. We all get passionate about something. I could be that upset/overjoyed debating the differences between the Grand Bank and Fortune accents. "Ryan and theys are here" versus "Rhinen em ease ear". Come on... lol

12C and sunny! It's a few decimals below normal but I'll count that as right on avg. It's our warmest temperature of 2018.
Mornings are still cold at 0C (that is 2C below normal) and it's extremely dry. Dewpoint of -8C this afternoon (RH at 25%) which is not unusual for spring with the lack of vegetation and ice cold river.

Mean April 2018 temperature after 20 days:

Montreal: 1.1C (Coldest April ever: 1.9C in 1943)
Toronto: 1.0C (Coldest April ever: 2.8C in 1972 and 1975)

The warmspot was Coronach, SK at 22.5C.

^ Nice photos, any blooms yet?

Great day in Vancouver, with 12°C so far, wind 0 km/hr; it's a beautiful sunny day for the Vancouver Sun Run, (the third-largest timed 10-kilometre road race in the world) with around 40,000 participants.

Lots of green bulbs pushing up leaves but the only things blooming are those white, purple, and yellow ones that can grow even under the snow.

Yeah.

The grass on my lawn is just starting to turn green, and some bulbs are starting to grow on the trees. The nice spring weather expected this upcoming week should help.

41, wow. Must've been in Central or Lab West. I think our highest-ever in St. John's is barely above 30.

You're right: 41.7 degrees was recorded in North West River, in central Labrador. The hottest temperature ever recorded on the island itself is 36.7 degrees in Botwood. And St. John's all-time high is 31.5 degrees, unless you count when the official weather station was located downtown, which then bumps that to 33.9 degrees.

Yeah, Labrador has mainland seasons. Which makes sense as it is technically mainland. Much hotter summers and much colder winters. Lots of clear skies. Crunchy snow. Or flies. Yech. I can count on one hand the number of mosquitoes I've seen since moving home in 2012. It's been so long now that my memories of running from the house to the car and getting a half dozen mosquito bites in Winnipeg feel not like something I lived, but something I read about or someone told me about lol.

Botwood is a horrible place name. It always makes me think of a maggot that lives in human skin. I forget the disease that's like that? Botfly larvae or something... but that's what instantly comes to mind every time I hear it.

14C and sunny! 1C above normal for a change.
It's insanely dry though with a dewpoint down to -12C (RH was down to 17%). My skin and especially lips were basically murdered. As a result, the low was 0C which is still below normal.

This is was actually our driest day in 2 years:
