Spring - From Frigid to Fine
Almost the entire region saw warmer-than-normal temperatures in May.
Spring, though, ended on the cold side of normal.
After multiple colder-than-normal months in a row, May was warmer than normal for all 35 Northeast airport climate sites. The last time all sites were warmer than normal was October 2013. The warmth of May could not make up for the coldness of March, though, as spring overall was colder than normal at 32 sites.
While 21 sites ended on the dry side of normal for May, 14 sites were wetter than normal. As for spring, much of the Northeast saw above-normal precipitation. Of the 27 wetter-than-normal sites, 17 ranked the season among their top 20 wettest.
