Late April in Barcelona

Just wondering how the weather in late April usually is in Barcelona? I have read mixed reviews. I am leaning towards visiting this time of year. I know May is probably preferrable, but not sure if my husband can get the time off. Also , September and October are not available for me to take off from work unfortunately.

Thank you!

Rather than relying on people's impressions, it's best to look directly at the weather in April in the past few years. In addition to being more objective, climate change means that weather from 5 or 10 years ago is no longer accurate in predicting how it will be now.

Here's Barcelona's weather for April 2019. Move the graph to see earlier parts of the month, then look at 2018 and 2017:
