May was another dry month and the cold spell early in the month meant that the month just scraped under normal as far as temperatures were concerned. Generally though the month would be considered close to normal. High pressure controlled the month and even when the Atlantic took over rainfall amounts generally were low. The first couple of days were on the warm side by day but cool at night. This warm start wasn't going to last and a cold spell started from the 3rd and lasting until the 10th. There were some ground frosts in sheltered spots and the coldest days of the month were recorded in this spells with 7.8C being the high on the 8th and only slightly better on the 9th with 7.9C. The coldest night was also in this period with 2.1C being the low on the 4th. It was this cold spell that stopped the month from continuing the very mild months. From the 12th a general summery feel to the weather commenced with temperatures reaching the low twenties three days on the trot. Apart from one cool day on the 18th temperatures remained in the high teams or low twenties until the end of the month. The cold spell at the start of the month was cold enough to prevent the month from being a mild one. Over all though May was a good month although earlier warm spring weather tainted peoples views with many thinking it was a cool month. A few hours of sun on the last few days on the month led to the warmest days of the month however for May the values were fairly low. The warmest day was 21.5C on the 30th. In main you would normally see a few mid twenties recorded. Rainfall at one stage looked like it would come above normal. Indeed it probably would have if it worked for Sheffield's great ability to find the hole in the showery air streams. Nearly all the rain fell in the first ten days with 13.5mm falling on the 8th and 8.6mm on the 3rd. After the 11th only 4.9mm of rain fell. The month had only just over 62.6% of the average rainfall which was enough to ensure that spring as a whole had below average rainfall. It was a quite month wind wise with little of note which as we are heading into summer this isn't a surprise really. There wasn't any snow fall observed in May. Once again another storm free month continuing the trend of recent years. June could well start on a hot note albeit a brief hot spell. This being the first weekend where temperatures could reach the mid twenties. However it doesn't last long as cooler unsettled conditions push eastward,. So the first week looks unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain. Temperatures after the hot start falling back towards more normal values. The 2nd weekend sees a push of warmer air from continent with possible Thundery showers this all depends on the exact position of the low over northern France a slight move west or east could mean that the hotter gets drawn further north across the country or if it's east we stay in more normal temperatures. The 2nd week does look warm to very warm but again still showery outlook. The third week sees high pressure to our north or north west feeding cooler air from the east or north east with the warmer areas in the west. Low cloud may effect eastern regions during the mornings keeping the temperatures in check. The final week sees the high drift over the UK so dry and settled and warm again. Overall I expect a very mild month with average rainfall. Most of the rainfall in the first two weeks of the month.
