What's the deal with the weather. March was much colder than normal....April checked out warmer that normal, including one record high....and now May is starting off wet and quite cool. No one around here can remember the last totally sunny weekend. A front splitting the state resulted in heavy rain and severe weather overnight in the northern counties. As the day progressed the rain slid south along with the temperature. We've been in the mid 50's most of the day while southern parts of the state climbed to the low 80s.
The rain has been very heavy at times with some areas north of Little Rock getting 5 to 8 inches of rain. It will be interesting to see if any official reporting stations have received copious amounts. Unfortunately Mike's Weather World Rain Gauge has suffered an irreplaceable malfunction....it's done broke. I haven't had time to find a replacement. The old one was over 10 years old .... that's 95 in rain gauge years.
Let me know how your weather has been.
