April is a wet month in the spring season of Louisiana, with unpredictable weather in its tow. Clear skies quickly give way to dark patches that bring heavy rainfall in brief periods. The average high temperatures are in the 75°F (23.9°C) to 80°F (26.7°C), while the average low temperatures are in the 51°F (10.6°C) to 61°F (16.1°C). Winnfield central Louisiana registers temperatures in the mild 53°F (11.7°C) to warm 77°F (25°C) range. The eight hours of daily sunshine plays host to many activities, including fishing, biking, and kayaking. April nights are moderate at best, and the conditions are suitable for lighting campfires and enjoying the backcountry. Camping is fun in the open country and the forests, but pack rainwear that offers protection from a heavy downpour. Wildflowers bloom in the countryside, and rural roads offer scenic views of nature. Budget travelers take advantage of the temperate conditions in the shoulder season to find discounted accommodations. Brace for thunderstorms during the afternoons in April in Louisiana.
