... May and Spring 2015 ranks as one of the wettest on record at
many locations across the four state region...

An extremely wet may areawide contributed to already abnormallly
wet conditions across much of the four state region observed during the
March and April timeframe. This resulted in numerous instances of flash
flooding throughout the month, as well as additional rises on many
lakes/reservoirs, rivers, and streams. Below are the total may rainfall,
their departures and percentages of normal, as well as how they rank in
terms of the wettest on record, for selected cities across the region:
