Tuesday was much more like April than mid to late May. It was cold and breezy with showers interspersed with some sunny spells.
In that heavy shower around 11:00 in the morning the temperature fell to 7.6°C (45.7°F)
Once again the day’s high temperature was disappointing reaching only 13.4°C or 56.1°F. I decided to look back over the last five years of records to see if it was particularly unusual to have a cold spell at this time of year. It turns out it’s not even our coldest May 19th as in 2012 the high temperature was a very cold 8.7°C (47.7°F) making Tuesday pretty balmy in comparison.
Lets hope it starts to get a little bit milder soon.
