April begins a significant drying trend in and around Cornwall. Temperatures continue to slowly climb even though visitors will probably want to bring at least a light jacked with them during any month of the year. This time of the year is a good one to visit as any hotels and restaurants that had been closed for the winter season are likely to be reopening and there will be more options for visitors to take advantage of.

Temperatures continue their slow, but steady march toward warmer numbers with an average daily temperature of 8°C (46°F). However, jackets and scarves will still be necessary as there is also an 80 percent chance of a windy day helping to make the temperatures feel much cooler than they actually are. Average afternoon highs will climb to 11°C (52°F) after starting the day at 5°C (41°F).

After experiencing close to 100mm of rain in each of the last six months, this time of the year is significantly drier. In fact, only 60mm of precipitation is expected throughout the month.  However, the number of wet days remains almost the same with measurable precipitation expected over an average of 20 days. Additionally, there is more sun this month than the region has seen in a while. On average, there are 7 hours of sunshine each day during this time of the year.

Visitors can take advantage of the extra sun and enjoy some strolls along the various local beaches. While it is still too cold to enjoy the waters, the beaches are a great way to see some of the local wildlife. The average water temperature for this time of the year is still a cool 10°C (50°F).
