While some may enjoy the grey, cloudy May days we’ve been experiencing, others are wondering what the heck is going on with our local weather. Grey and rain in May? but a recent post on LAist.com says the humid weather in May isn’t really all that unusual. While California receives the majority of its rain between December and the start of April, it’s completely normal to see some occasional May wetness.
“It’s not crazy by any standards,” Bruno Rodriguez, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in San Diego, told LAist.com. “The fact that we’re coming off a pretty extended drought is probably making this seem a little more fascinating than it really is.”
According to LAist.com, “Though, the May grey we’ve been living with (which is also completely normal!) will likely stick around.” “This is pretty typical,” Rodriguez said. “And it’s going to continue through May and probably into June.”
The extra moisture in the air has been great for local gardens and plants. But is sure is nice to see the sun occasionally too!
