Weather in April

We are planning a trip for our spring break in late April and was wondering how the weather was in the area during that time? Are there festivals or anything going on? I went to the PA webpage, but it is not really user friendly.

thanks

The best way to find out what the weather is likely to be anywhere at a particular time is to use the Trip Planner feature on www.wunderground.com and type in the range of dates you're interested in for the city you're interested in.

Otherwise, you're just relying on people like me saying it is usually nice by the end of April (which feels true to me after going through our overly long, overly gray winters, but it might not seem like nice weather to you).

April is typically a bit rainy, but in recent years, it seems that May has been the rainy month of spring. The temperatures will be cool in comparison to the South. The average highs are in the 60s and the lows in the upper 30s during April. We have been known to get a little bit of snow in April as well. The nice part about visiting in April is that the people are a little more cheerful because we know that the cold winter temps are usually behind us and flowers and trees are beginning to bloom.

April is not a big festival month in Pittsburgh

but you would do well to check the "events" listings in the Pittsburgh City Paper a couple of weeks before you arrive.
