A very wet Spring with average temperatures
Apart from a cold start to the Spring it was actually pretty close to average for most of the season. The overall temperature was only slightly (0.2 degrees) lower than average. However, just looking at the daytime highs it was about a full degree less than average which is the coldest since 2003.
It was a very wet Spring with 338.2 mm of precipitation compared to the average of 219.5 mm. But this is not a record as we had 342.2 mm back in 1997 (that year saw over 100 mm during the first three weeks of June).
