Our April showers certainly showed up over the past month. It was an exact opposite situation from a year ago when we couldn’t get any rain out of April skies and were on our way to a four-month dry spell! Not this April...most locations saw plenty of rain.
Every week in April saw at least some rain, and, on top of that, we stayed relatively cool, too!
Turning to May, let’s start with two sky events happening this week...our Full Flower Moon, as it’s called, occurs May 5 and the one meteor shower in the May skies, the Eta Aquarid, happens at the same time so the moon’s brightness might make it difficult to see much.
You’ve probably already noticed we’re warm this week. Our average highs reach 90 by the end of this month, and you’ll notice we’ve even made it to 99 degrees!
We’re expecting an “average” month temperature wise with continuing showers each week:
And, finally, I should mention that the Eastern Pacific Hurricane season begins May 15 while ours begins June 1. However, plenty of seasons these days are producing May tropical storms before that June date, so stay aware!
Welcome to May!
