It was planned for this to go out earlier but I had to make a dash to the field to collect precipitation samples before the bottles overflowed. This is a problem that has never popped up before. Keep in mind that some of this was written before the recent moisture events.

Actually this May was almost a carbon-copy of May, 2003 Most daytime temperatures ran above normal for May but no daily records were broken during the entire month.

If you think you missed the April Met Central - you are right.... I still haven't sent it out. Loss of computer link between UNM and the field station has left me unable to run monthly summaries. I hope both the link and the report will be available soon.

As difficult as it may be to remember back that far, February actually gave us a real dose of winter weather. NOAA had predicted increased chances of warmer than normal temperatures for NM coupled with increased chances of drier than normal conditions as well. I think we can safely say that they went 0 for 2.

The average daytime highs ran cooler than average by 0.8 degrees C but the daytime lows ran 0.5 degrees warmer than average. Consequently, daytime averages were 0.2 degrees below average. Most days got warmer than average during the first half of January but storms later in the month brought the temperatures back below normal for much of the second half. One daily low temperatures record was broken on the 5th. Monthly records were never really threatened.
