April Showers Will be Here Until June
I feel like it has been raining since last year. No joke the sunny days have been few and far between. Even if it doesn't actually rain we have had to deal with damp and cloudy. This got me thinking what will May and June be like weather wise? So I headed to the Farmer's Almanac and let's just say I am not pleased with the prediction. Spoiler alert it's not alot of sun.
Looking over the next 6 to 8 weeks we will have more raining weeks that sunny weeks. If you look at the chart below you will see that of the three weeks left in May 2 of them are predicted to be rainy. June doesn't look much better. The wet spring has been great for the plants. But everything being so green has me wanting more sun. Unfortunately according to the predicted weather I we are out of luck. Inly one fourth of the weather between now and the end of June is sunny.
Don't take my word for it. This is the actual chart from the farmer's Almanac's 2019 Long Range Forecast for the Northeast.
|May 1-7||Rainy periods, cool|
|May 8-10||Sunny, warm|
|May 11-14||Showers, cool|

I have never wanted the Farmer's Almanac to be so wrong.
