PA Blurb - May 2014

May averaged slightly above normal temperatures (similar to April), but most of the Commonwealth was wetter than average. Only a few pockets of drier than normal conditions were found, one in the southwest corner and another in the south-central section downwind of the Laurel Highlands and another diminutive area in the Poconos. Severe weather was noted on three consecutive days (May 13-15) with the first tornado of the year reported in Clinton County on the 15th (an EF0). A powerful squall line on May 22nd brought more than 40 reports of hail, some large enough to do serious damage and enough hail fell in a section of the Lehigh Valley to warrant plows being deployed. The lingering cool conditions and increased rainfall during May delayed the start of dirt track racing, but also slowed the spread of the gypsy moth.
