May 2015 Newsletter


Although much of the rest of the world has been warmer than normal (see NOAA Global Analysis for March 2015), the Northeast has been persistently cool for January-March (5oC cooler than average over this period).  It's been quite cold here, so Spring has taken its time in coming.  Thankfully, as I write this note, there's a long stretch of temperatures on the horizon that look pretty good to me!  The daffodils are out, the forsythia is finally in full bloom, and it looks like lilacs will be coming out soon.  Hurray!
