...LATE MONTH RAIN PUSHES MAY ABOVE NORMAL FOR PRECIPITATION...

NEARLY TWO INCHES OF RAIN ON THE LAST TWO DAYS OF MAY HELPED PUSH
MONTHLY PRECIPITATION TOTALS TO AROUND 5 INCHES AT FORT WAYNE. THIS
ALSO MOVED THE MONTHLY PRECIPITATION TOTALS FROM THE BELOW NORMAL
CATEGORY TO THE ABOVE NORMAL CATEGORY. IT WAS ALSO A RELATIVELY WARM
MONTH WITH TEMPERATURES AVERAGING NEARLY 4 DEGREES WARMER THAN
NORMAL. THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH HOWEVER WAS VERY COOL WITH DAYTIME
TEMPERATURES ONLY AROUND 60.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS 64.3 DEGREES...3.9 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 15TH WARMEST MAY ON RECORD SINCE 1912.
THERE WERE JUST 9 DAYS WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE BELOW NORMAL. THE
HIGHEST TEMPERATURE WAS 86 ON THE 7TH AND 8TH WHILE THE COOLEST WAS
36 ON THE 20TH. THERE WERE 15 DAYS WITH A HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 80
DEGREES OR WARMER BUT ALSO 3 DAYS WITH A HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 60 OR
LESS.

MAY PRECIPITATION WAS ABOUT THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH BELOW NORMAL
HEADING INTO THE 30TH BUT 1.10 INCHES OF RAIN FELL AT THE AIRPORT ON
THIS DAY AND ANOTHER 0.75 INCHES FELL ON THE 31ST. THIS PUSHED THE
MONTHLY TOTAL PRECIPITATION TO 5.01 INCHES...0.74 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 20TH WETTEST MAY ON RECORD SINCE 1912.
WITHOUT THIS LATE MONTH HEAVY RAIN...MAY WOULD HAVE RANKED AROUND
40TH DRIEST.

THERE WAS NO SNOWFALL RECORDED DURING THE MONTH.
