A May Record (And Not the Good Kind)

May 20, 2015: Did you know that we have had as many days in the 50’s this month as we’ve had days in the 80’s so far? Yep. Three days a piece.  That doesn’t count the 40°, record-setting weather for today.

Today’s coldest high temperature record was 51°, set in 2002.  A high of 47° this afternoon definitely broke that record.  We ended up being 26° below average.

The atmosphere was cold enough to produce ice pellets as rain added insult to the injury of the cold, May weather. The ice didn’t accumulate, but still wasn’t pleasant to see.

For those of you wanting to have the warmer weather back, you’ll get your wish.  We will rocket into the 70’s starting tomorrow.
