A closer look at May

As we start a new month, the Climate Prediction Center has put out their new one-month outlook for the month of May.  It seems that our trend for below average temperatures or in this case slightly below average temperatures will continue through May.  The average high is around 71°F while the average low is 48°F. 

For precipitation, it looks like we will receive our monthly dosage of rain (hopefully it stays rain and not something else).  Rockford typically gets 4.03 inches of precip in May.  Taking a closer look, the wettest May would be back in 1996 when we saw 11.75 inches of rain.  The driest was in 1992 when we only recorded 0.48 inches of rain.
