May 2012 Recap: Wetter, but still above normal

The streak continues: May 2012 was unable to break the streak of over 13 straight months which have finished above normal in the temperature

department in New York City. Such a streak is not unprecedented, but is becoming very impressive with each month that passes. The last month which registered a below normal departure from average was March of 2011, which seems like a distant memory at this point. The more you analyze the statistics, the more impressive they become. Every single month beginning with April 2011 has been above normal in NYC — including the Summer and Autumn of 2011, and Winter and Spring of 2012. May 2012 featured several rainy days, and several days with bel0w-normal departures, but a late-month surge of heat was enough to keep departures above normal. Still, since May 1st 2012, 24 of 35 days have featured rain (measurable precipitation in New York City). To have such a high amount of days with precipitation, but still average temperatures 2 to 4 degrees above normal is pretty remarkable. That being said, the month finished above normal in the temperature department across much of the Central and Eastern United States, stretching from the Northeast through the Great Lakes and Plains into the Desert Southwest. The above-normal departures certainly were not localized to our area.

    In the great scheme of things you’ll secure an A for hard work. Where you confused us ended up being in the facts. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more true here. Having said that, let me inform you what did give good results. Your article (parts of it) is actually really persuasive and that is most likely why I am taking the effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can certainly notice a jumps in logic you make, I am not confident of exactly how you appear to connect the points which inturn make the final result. For right now I shall subscribe to your point however wish in the near future you actually connect the facts much better.
