New Jersey, along with most of the East, had experienced severe drought conditions prior to April 20, 1963. The spring had been exceptionally dry and windy, thus far. Only an average of 0.30 inches of rainfall had fallen in April, and the total since March 20 at the Lebanon Experimental Forest was only 0.57 inches of rainfall. The precipitation deficit had been 3.00 inches for March. Precipitation for April was already 2.00 inches below normal when April 20 dawned bright, clear, and exceptionally dry.
