May Weather Summary

Since the last post, May dried off and heated up.  We enjoyed some sun at the beginning of the month, a wet--although not over the top--middle, and by the end, we were getting a nice welcome into summer.


Mean Temp:  64.7°
Deviation:  +1.0°
Maximum:  91° on May 24
Minimum:  41° on May 8


Average May:  4.97"
Actual May:  4.23"  (0.74")

Days with measurable precip:  12

Even with 12 days of measurable precipitation, we still came under the mark for the month.  This is partly due to the fact that we didn't have any 1" events, but rather more moderate amounts as shown in the above graph.  Compare this with last year's totals below.  We had 12 days of measurable precip, but over an inch more rain filled the bucket.

Other Weather Info

Days with thunder:  10
Days with fog:  4
Days with wind gust (>= 20 mph):  5

As of today (June 11), we've mowed the yard 7 times.

Just a normal everyday month for you down there, eh? Still with 4"+ and below average. You all get a ton of rain...

That we do. And we sure do miss it when it doesn't come. We've sure dodged the drought bullet the past two years. Not sure when our luck will run dry (pun intended)
