So IND finished April exactly 0.0?

 

Correct. Underachieved on the high temp yesterday.

 

I suppose it's now a monthly non-positive departure streak. ;)

And a little ex past facto, but the NCDC state data just came back online.

 

January-March 2014 is tied for the 3rd coldest on record for the state of Indiana.

 

1) 21.7º in 1978

2) 22.3º in 1912

3) 25.2º in 2014

10) 27.4º in 1970

 

Longterm mean average temperature: 31.9º

 

Period of record: 1895-2014

 

Individual monthly rankings

January 2014: 10th coldest

February 2014: 13th coldest

March 2014: 13th coldest

 

As you can see on the chart below, a rather big two year drop from the record warmest Jan-Mar 2012 (40.9º). In fact, 15.7º is the difference between the two years.

I've wondered about May 2, 1897.  Records list some precip but no snow for us.  Hard to comprehend that we'd actually be missed to the south by snow in May.

Looking likely that May is going to average above normal for Indianapolis, despite the cool start. So, what does a warm May mean for Summer?

 

35 of the following Summers were warmer than normal.

42 of the following Summers were "warm normal" or warmer than normal.

17 of the following Summers were cooler than normal.

25 of the following Summers were "cool normal" or cooler than normal.

 

 

Looking at the cool Mays, the opposite holds true.

 

16 of the following Summers were warmer than normal.

22 of the following Summers were "warm normal" or warmer than normal.

3 of the following Summers were exactly normal.

38 of the following Summers were cooler than normal.

42 of the following Summers were "cool normal" or cooler than normal.

 

 

The case of the seven near normal Mays: 4 of the Summers were warmer than normal...and 3 were cooler than normal.
