Weather Data for May

Well it's half way through June I know, but for Bloomsday, I thought I'd offer you
 May's weather statistics for here in Benraw.

A very different picture to April!

Met √Čireann states:

Depressions over the Atlantic were the main influence on Ireland’s weather during the month of May, giving generally unsettled weather across the country with very strong winds at times. The start of the month was relatively warm and dry, with almost all of the highest temperatures for the month recorded in the first week. These maximum temperatures were some of the lowest May maxima recorded in recent years, however; Mullingar’s highest value of only 17.3°C was its lowest for May since 1972.
