A look back: May Finished off around 2C warmer than normal with normal rainfall, for the 2nd year in a row the month of May did not see any snow. The temperature soared to 30C not once, but TWICE. It has not hit 30C twice in May since 1993. After a hot start to the month conditions changed to more seasonal and a battering of thunderstorm, one of them severe, the first severe thunderstorm in May since 2006. May 2013 was most certainly exceptional in many ways.
