With very few exceptions so far, our month of May has certainly been rather warm and mostly pleasant. Sure we had that first week in the month where it was a little stormy, but we collected some much needed rainfall and since the 6th of the month it’s been essentially wall-to-wall sunshine with what you might want to call “room temperature weather” as highs have been in the 60s and 70s for the most part. Even when we reached the 80s, the humidity wasn’t a concern at all, so it felt amazingly comfortable. Statistically, we’re running a little above normal for temperatures and rainfall this month and it looks like the warm trend will carry us right into the weekend and beyond. As far as rainfall goes, we have a slight surplus and that should carry us into the weekend when more widespread rain chances are expected locally and then later next week, it appears our pattern may be getting active again for a while, so that department seems okay as well. Our highs will hover in the 70s today and tomorrow before some warmer air blows in for Friday and Saturday ahead of an approaching storm system from the west. There will be just a little taste of summer in the air for those two days before we dip back into the 70s for the longer term.
