Here was an interesting nugget from the NWS Louisville home page talking about the warmest spring (March-May) we have ever seen in Kentucky...
Warmest Spring on Record
A historically warm March across central Kentucky was followed by well-above-normal temperatures in May. Throw in temperatures that ran just slightly above average in April, and that's enough for the warmest spring on record. All four long-term climate sites in central Kentucky broke records, with Louisville and Bowling Green surpassing the old marks by 3 degrees! It's also worth noting that 3 of the last 6 springs rank among the warmest 10 springs.
Average Temperatures (March through May)...
|Spring 2012||Old record (Year)|
|Bowling Green||65.1||61.6 (1929)|
Then its worth noting that today may end up as one of the coolest June 1st's ever. The coolest high ever recorded was 62 degrees. As of 3 PM we have only reached 61 since sunrise. However we were at 66 at midnight so it won't go into the books as the coolest ever.
