Great Barrington — As of 6 a.m. Thursday, May 23, the running rain total is 3.43 inches with the promise of more to come. I have recorded only three completely (midnight to midnight) fair days this month. May 22 was almost four. Clouds came in shortly before midnight. We probably will finish with a little above average rainfall.
The average rain for May since these weather records were started in 1965 is 4.46 inches. The wettest May was 12.7 inches in 1984, most of which occurred during the Memorial Day weekend when we had more than 7 inches (see below). The driest May was 1980 with 1.44 inches.
