April welcomes bright days to Idaho, with a significant decrease in rain and snow. The precipitation ranges from 1" (25mm) to 3" (76mm), and the snow season is over in the south. The icy cold gives way to bearable temperatures that average between 19°F (-7.2°C) to 43°F (6.1°C) during the nights. Days are warm and average in the 51°F (10.6°C) to 68°F (20°C) range, with 7 to 8 hours of beautiful sunshine. The white landscape of winter gradually gives way to a tinge of green everywhere, including the mountains. The melting of snow brings fresh water to lakes, rivers, and streams. Waterfalls roar with a renewed intensity, and the fresh air charges the atmosphere. Fishing enthusiasts are in search of the mountain trout, bass, and salmon that migrate with the change of season. The hibernating animals forage for food, and hunters have plenty of choices from deer, elk, goats, and bears. A jacket is handy to withstand the temperature drop in the evenings. April is the beginning of the tourist season in Idaho.
