More cool, wet weather in the forecast

After reaching a blissful 70 degrees on Friday, it's back to May-uary weather for us.
"Unfortunately it's not going to get back to 70 anytime soon," said Johnny Burg of the National Weather Service on Sunday.
The early part of the week is supposed to be cloudy with a chance of rain, Burg said. By Wednesday, rain will be likely. High temperatures will range from the mid-50s to mid-60s; lows in the 40s. The long-range forecast is cool and wet.
Temperatures this May are running 5 degrees cooler than the historical average through Saturday; precipitation is almost an inch above the normal average.
We've already had two record low temperatures this month: 38 degrees on May 12 and 39 degrees on May 17. Just three years ago we had a record high of 90 on May 17.
April was more of the same: average highs were 6 degrees below average and precipitation was nearly 2 inches above the norm.
