PA Blurb - May 2016

The first half of May was active, with frequent intrusions of relatively chilly to the state. Cool and damp conditions would prevail through the middle of the month, with many record low maximum temperatures being set (e.g. 46F at State College on the 15th). The lowest temperature of the month occurred during this time, with a reading of 26F at Oswayo. Following this very cold air, seasonal weather returned to the state with highs primarily in the 60s and 70s through the 23rd. The last week of the month brought an abrupt beginning to summer, with persistent hot and humid conditions and scattered showers and thunderstorms through the end of the month. Monthly temperature anomalies statewide averaged slightly below normal and precipitation totals in most areas did not reach their long-term averages. Because of the consistent chill for much of the month, May was very quiet with respect to severe thunderstorms with just 3 damaging wind and 3 hail reports.
