April 2012 was Cooler than March 2012 (530 AM 5/1/12)

On the minds of many weather enthusiasts lately, was whether we would end up with a cooler average temperature for April 2012 compared to our "Hot" March 2012 average temperature.  Now that April is in the books, the answer to this is yes, April was cooler.  This is a feat that was accomplished in Milwaukee only one other time (1907) and was tied at Madison that same year (i.e. March and April had the same average temperature in 1907).  Madison had never had a cooler April than the preceding March until this year.
