Easter 2021 warmer and drier than normal holiday

Easter Sunday 2021 will have mostly sunny skies and temperatures climbing into the 70s. Enjoy this pleasant day, because Easter could be a lot cooler and a lot snowier.

The average temperature for Easter Sunday in South Bend is around 56 degrees. We'll crush this average today, but we won't set a record for warmest.

The warmest Easter ever was on April 13, 1941. That Sunday it was 85 degrees.

The coolest Easter in South Bend happened just one year before that. It was a cool 24 degrees on Easter March 24, 1940.

It has snowed on 22 different Easters. The most snow was eight inches on April 4, 1920. That year was surely a bit more difficult to find Easter eggs hidden buried in the snow.

We've also had our fair share of spring showers on Easter. The highest rain total for an Easter Sunday was 1.66" on April 22, 1973.

This year, enjoy the pleasant weather and remember, it could be much worse!
