A look back at May’s weather

We’ve seen a lot of rain these past few weeks, and our Stormtrack Weather Team has tracked it all. With this week being characterized by rain and cooler temperatures, data was collected to see how this May lined up to our average conditions for mid-Missouri Mays. 

Our average high temperature was near 73 degrees which is about ten degrees higher than our climatic average of 64.4 degrees. This climatic average has been found from data concerning May temperatures from 1895 to 2020. 

On the rain side of things, we were also above average. We saw 6.17” of rainfall across the month with our highest one day total rainfall accumulation coming on May 18th where we picked up 1.27” of rainfall.
