Rain, Rain Go Away Before We Set a Record in May

There’s still a lot of days left in the month of May and we’re already well past the normal amount of rain, way past.  Climatologists at Cornell say the entire Northeast has seen one of wettest Mays in just the first 2 weeks.
Jessica Spaccio, a climatologist with the Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell University says to date May has been the 5th wettest in New York history. As the map below shows, the entire Northeast has seen the first 2 weeks of the month well above normal. In CNY we’ve seen more than twice the normal amount of rainfall.

Oddly enough, Spaccio says while last year’s drought is over, the next one may be just a few weeks away, as forecasts call for above normal temperatures and uncertainty on rainfall amounts for the entire summer.

What makes the concern even greater is the wet spring has delayed planting and a hot and dry summer would be right in the heart of the growing season. Read more on the drought concerns at Cornell’s Climate page.
