May was certainly a wet one

But the low temperatures were a figment of your imagination

Here’s a surprise.

The average temperature during May 2019 was 61.5 degrees. While most residents thought it was a rather cold and dreary month, that temperature was 1 degree above the normal average, which is 60.5 degrees for May.

However, to appreciate these stats, the maximum average temperature for May reached only 71.1 degrees, and – here you go – the average minimum temperature for the month was 51.8 degrees.

Theses weather stats are from Guy Verhoff, Pandora weather observer.
