A Pronounced Transition: Spring 2015 Recap
New Jersey State Climatologist
June 4, 2015
May 2015 was a warm and dry month across New Jersey. As the month ended, drought concerns were looming large, though rainfall in the north during the afternoon and evening of the 31st and continuing into the first days of June resulted in at least a temporary braking of the downward slide. Based on data gathered at long-term National Weather Service Cooperative Observing (COOP) stations, May rainfall averaged 1.08" across NJ. This is 2.92" below the 1981-2010 mean and ranks as the 3rd driest May since records commenced in 1895.
Temperatures were quite warm throughout May. The statewide average temperature of 66.0° was 5.2° above average. This ranked as the 3rd warmest may since 1895. It was the persistence of above-average temperatures (especially daily maximums) rather than a scorching heat wave that led to the high ranking. Four of the eight warmest Mays have occurred since 2004.
