Unfortunately, we’re talking about rainfall here. We got off to a great start in May after a soggy April, but look at where we are now:

Some areas, like Bedford county, are over 75% above average for the entire month already. Get used to it, [...]
Take a look at the first week of April last year, versus the forecast for April 1-7:

With only 2 days to go, June will go down as an above average month. Take a look at where we are now:
We’re going to cool off Tuesday and Wednesday, and Wednesday is likely to be well below average. But we’ll still end up 1 to 2 degrees [...]
Think back to early May. We had some really, really cool and wet days. We even had some snow. Well, another one of “those” is on the way. We won’t see any snow, but it’s going to be cold.
Low pressure will pass right over northern PA on Wednesday. At the same time, high [...]
Wasn’t it great today? At least weather-wise? Look at our afternoon highs:
We’ll do it again Friday, maybe even a little warmer. Clouds will be on the increase during the day, however, ¬ as our next storm system approaches.¬ That storm is slated to move in during the weekend, but just how strong [...]
Look at these late day temperatures in Pennsylvania:
A warm front is on its way through the state, and it’s clear where the front was as of 6 pm Thursday. Some sunshine and temps in the 60s in Indiana, compared to low 50s and cloudy in Altoona. We’ll get much warmer for Friday, [...]
Well, kind of. It’s going to feel pretty warm compared to how it’s been as of late.

Not a very memorable month, except for the chill and bouts of rain. We were actuallya little below average in the precipitation department for the month, but we got nickled and dimed almost every other day. Here’s a look at how we did with temperatures:
The humidity has certainly been rather high over the past week or so, but our temperatures have not been that warm surprisingly. Clouds and rain have kept a lid of temps so far this month, take a look:
It appears that later next week, we should see some above average heat push [...]
As most of us already know, March was very dry. We saw our share of brush and wild fires the entire month. Only trace amounts of snow fell, which was unusual. And the rain amounts were way below where they should have been
