REMARKS...SPRING 2015 WAS THE 4TH LEAST SNOWY AND 9TH WETTEST AT
FARGO. THE WINTERS DROUGHT CONTINUED INTO MARCH AND APRIL PRODUCING
LITTLE PRECIPITATION AND SNOWFALL...AS A RESULT THE SNOWFALL TOTAL
THIS SEASON WAS ONLY FOUR TENTHS OF AN INCH WHICH IS THE 4TH LEAST
SNOWY SPRING SEASON ON RECORD. WHEN PRECIPITATION RETURNED THE
SECOND WEEK OF MAY IT DID SO IN ABUNDANCE...WITH THE WETTEST MAY ON
RECORD HELPING MAKE THIS THE 9TH WETTEST SPRING ON RECORD.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 45.2 DEGREES WHICH WAS 2.2 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL.
