A week-long warm spell had temperatures that averaged 12 degrees warmer than average. However, today's high of 79° turned out to be the mildest reading of the month - not very warm for that distinction. In fact, the last time the warmest reading in May was this "cool" was more than 30 years ago. It would happen again in 2003 and 2005.
With a high of 90 °, today was the third day in a row with a record high. (And tomorrow would be the fourth in a row when the high reached 92°, the hottest of the four days).
1.29" of rain fell between midnight and 8AM, with more than half of it coming down between 3:30-4:30 when 0.67" fell.
An overnight thunderstorm dumped 0.43" of rain between 1-2AM.
The 0.61" of rain the fell today, mostly before daybreak, made this the rainiest day in ten weeks (since 1.21" fell on 2/24).
