So....the rain MAY becoming to end (please!) and the sun MAY come out soon (please!) and it MAY finally be getting warmer (please!) so let’s see how much rain we have gotten so far this May.
Well according to Newschannel 9 meteorologist John DiPasquale, its been pretty wet! Through this past Monday and part of Tuesday, Central New York has already had over four inches of rain. The average rainfall for the whole month of May is three and a quarter inches, and we still have two weeks to go in the month!
So are we close to a record for rainfall this spring? Not close! According to DiPasquale, this spring isn’t even in the top five! This spring, which meteorologists consider to be from March 1st until May 31st, we have had nine inches of rain. However, in 1976, Central New York had over 20 inches of rain! Wow!
