No new temperature records here the month was a little too cold anyway

Code: Select all

Highest rainrate    61.1        mm/hr    may 28th
Lowest humidity      25           %        may 24th
Lowest pressure    991.4       hPa        may 5 th


Spring was too dry and sunny temperature a little below normal (all averages, but big differences on most days days so unsteady weather as usual)
I have a cold spring in memory but last year it was a very warm spring over here.
