Fewest Days Without 60 Degrees

A friend of mine - Brian Schmit, put together the following research:

__________________________________________________

Period of record for Portland (PDX), 1949 - 2011

Least number of days above 60 degrees for any year before April 30th

1.  2011   /   5 days as of April 25th

2.  1955   /    9 days

3.  1975   /  10 days

4.  1967   /  11 days

5.  1950   /  13 days

6.  2008   /  15 days

______________________________

If the forecast holds true through this Saturday (April 30th), 2011 will have 6 days above 60 degrees through the month of April.  The least of any year since records began at PDX!

Anyone surprised?
