...REMARKS...THE MAIN THEME FOR THE WEATHER THIS MONTH WAS RAIN.
NEARLY TWICE THE NORMAL AMOUNT OF RAIN FELL DURING THE MONTH. NO
RECORDS WERE SET...BUT 2.28 INCHES OF RAIN FELL ON THE 17TH. THIS IS
THE MOST ON A SINGLE CALENDAR DAY SINCE SEPTEMBER OF 2014. IN
GENERAL THE RAIN WAS FAIRLY EVENLY SPREAD OUT THROUGH THE MONTH WITH
MEASURABLE RAIN FALLING ON 26 DAYS. THIS WAS DUE TO NUMEROUS SMALLER
SYSTEMS MOVING THROUGH IN QUICK SUCCESSION.

TEMPERATURES WERE NEAR TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL WITH THE AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH BEING 2.5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THE COLDEST
TEMPERATURES WERE ON THE 1ST AND 2ND WHEN THE MERCUIRY DROPPED TO 29
DEGREES BOTH NIGHTS. THIS TIED A RECORD ON THE 2ND THAT WAS LAST SET
IN 1924. AFTER THOSE TWO NIGHTS TEMPERATURES REMAINED ABOVE FREEZING
THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH.
