The Amazing Rains of May: Photos and Stats

Dr. Jeff Masters, June 2, 2015

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

Now that May has mercifully drawn to a close, and the south-central states are drying out and cleaning up, we can take full measure of what an incredibly, destructively soggy month it was, especially for Texas and Oklahoma. Both states obliterated their rainfall records for any calendar month going back to 1895. The flooding killed at least 31 people, with 6 others missing as of Monday night, and inflicted tens of millions of dollars in damage.

Christopher C. Burt, May 28, 2015

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

Keeping track of all-time warmest/coldest daily maximum temperatures and all-time warmest/coldest months on record for any given site is a fairly easy task. However, very few NWS sites provide data concerning what their respective coldest climatological winters (December-February) or hottest climatological summers (June-August) have been. Researching 300 sites in the contiguous U.S. I have put together this summary for such. Below are the methods I used and some of the results, which proved quite interesting.
