Warmest Spring ever!

June 1, 2012

  If you’re looking for a reason to throw a party, here you go. We just set a record for the warmest meteorological Spring (March through May) in Twin Cities history! Our record warm March gave us a running start, and we finished with an average Spring temperature of 54 degrees. That’s the average of all the daily high temperatures and low temperatures for the three month period. More info can be found at the Minnesota State Climatology Office site: http://climate.umn.edu/doc/journal/warm_spring2012.htm .

  What about June? The updated June outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows a major change from two weeks ago. The new outlook shows a tendency for above normal temperatures over Minnesota and Wisconsin: 

  This doesn’t mean that there won’t be some cool days, but there is a good chance that the average monthly temperature will be above normal. The rainfall outlook doesn’t show a trend toward either wet or dry weather over Minnesota and Wisconsin. By the way, our final May rainfall tally at MSP was 9.34 inches, making it the second wettest May in Twin Cities history. Our wettest May occurred in 1906, with 10.33 inches of rain.
