One thunderstorm, that’s all we got, one goshdarn thunderstorm?
I suppose for the thunderstorm enthusiast, the month of May was a weak beginning to the warm season storm count. Since 2007 OSNW3 has only averaged three thunderstorms for the month of May, so I suppose it’s not that big of a surprise. It is an average after all. For good measure, May of 2014 had six thunderstorms.
The monthly temperature ended 1.6 degrees above average, at 59.4 degrees. The warmest temperature recorded was 84.3 degrees on May 29th and the coldest temperature recorded was 34.5 degrees on May 13th. The monthly precipitation ended 2.29 inches above average. The 5.51 inches recorded is the second most in OSNW3 history. Winnebago county is no longer in a drought condition per the state drought monitor. More drought information can be found here.
