The weather in month of April is famously unpredictable, with hailstorms, rain and snow intermixed with brilliant sunshine. And yet, we are just as surprised every year... 

Listen to this interview by our meteorologist Conny Larsson, where he explains why April is such a special time in the meteorological year on our part of the planet. Cold oceans and warmer continents leads to warm and cold air masses that collide in the skies above os, as winter is slowly letting go. This, in turn, can lead to sudden hailstorms followed by brilliant sunshine.
