Even though the last couple of days in the month of May we quite a bit cooler than normal and even a little unsettled, the overall picture for May 2012 was a rather warm one for us. As we’ve seen every month so far this year, our average high temperature for the month was warmer than normal as was the low while rainfall was more than an inch greater than the 30 year average, so aside from the lack of extensive humidity, we’ve already had quite a taste of summer weather this season. In fact, today (June 1st) marks the beginning of what we call “meteorological summer” where the three warmest, wettest month of the calendar year are bunched together for climate record keeping purposes, so at least we’re primed for the new season and ready to go. As it appears right now, we’ll have a couple of comfortable spring-like days ahead today and tomorrow, before the near 80° warmth builds in for the end of the weekend and then lingers for the first full week of the young month of June next week.
