Memorial Day weekend… the weekend where Northern New Englanders can traditionally start to plant crops that do not tolerate any level of frost, will bring conditions more typical of April than of late May. Today is not even expected to reach 50 degrees in my town, with a forecast high of 49 degrees. Snow levels are going down to 2000 feet tonight.. although I will not personally see any snow from this, the mountainous regions will see some very late-season white stuff. The last two days have each brought an inch of rain, with another inch likely to fall today. We’ve gone from very dry conditions to saturated conditions over the past week. This has been the chilliest May that I remember in quite some time.
That said, next week looks sunnier and warmer… might even break 80 for the first time this year. Looks like next week might be garden-planting week.
Anybody else seeing cooler-than-normal conditions?
