A Mixed May Forecast
May 15, 2017,
Last Year, Temperatures Were Much different than the previous four Mays, as temps were cooler than normal for the United States as a whole. Very cold, blustery weather mid-month in the North Central U.S. and the Northeast caused a late-season freeze.
The first sustained stretch of more summery weather didn’t arrive in the Northeast until very late in the month and into the Memorial Day holiday. Tropical Storm Bonnie brought showers and thunderstorms along the Southeast coast into the Memorial Day weekend.
Heat and dryness is predicted for Texas and points north into the western High Plains of Nebraska and Kansas. Cool and wet weather will be more likely in New England and the Northwest.
The Southeast Coast will enjoy normal or warmer-than-normal temperatures. And a significant warm-up in the eastern U.S. may begin as early as Mother’s Day. However, Memorial Day weekend may experience cooler and we er weather.
