WEATHERWISE DURING MAY OF 2017 IN SHREVEPORT AND BOSSIER CITY, WE
RECEIVED ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL AND SLIGHTLY COOLER THAN NORMAL
TEMPERATURES.  THE RAINS PROVED QUITE TIMELY THIS MONTH AND ENDED
INCIPIENT DROUGHT CONDITIONS.

AS HAS BEEN SEEMINGLY USUAL FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE MEMORIAL
DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND OBSERVED ACTIVE WEATHER WITH THE PASSAGE OF A
STRONG COLD FRONT.  DURING MAY 25, THE LOW TEMPERATURE RECEDED TO 53
DEGREES AND BROKE THE DAILY LOW TEMPERATURE RECORD OF 54 DEGREES SET
DURING 1963. THIS FRONT THEN RETURNED AS A STRONG WARM FRONT DURING
THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND AND COMBINED WITH A STRONG SHORTWAVE TROUGH TO
PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL DURING MAY 28TH, BEFORE MEMORIAL DAY.
SHREVEPORT TALLIED 3.12 INCHES OF RAINFALL THAT SUNDAY EVENING AND
BROKE THE DAILY RAINFALL RECORD OF 2.42 INCHES SET DURING 1952.
SHREVEPORT OBSERVED NUMEROUS FLOODED STREETS AND ROADWAYS THAT
EVENING AS WELL AS DOWNED TREES AND POWER LINES IN SOUTH SHREVEPORT
FROM THE SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS.

FOR THE CLIMATOLOGICAL SPRING OF 2017 (MARCH 1 THROUGH MAY 31),
SHREVEPORT RECORDED AN AVERAGE SPRING TEMPERATURE OF 68.0 DEGREES
THAT RANKS AS THE TWELFTH WARMEST SPRING AND THE WARMEST SINCE THE
SPRINGTIME OF 2012.  2012 REMAINS OUR WARMEST SPRINGTIME ON RECORD
WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 71.1 DEGREES.

OUR SPRINGTIME RAINFALL TALLIED 13.31 INCHES VERY NEAR THE NORMAL
