The Month Of May In Quebec Is Going To Be Cool And Extremely Wet

The Farmer's Almanac is a handy resource for those who want a detailed, long-term forecast. According to the almanac, "long range forecasts can be used to make more informed decisions about future plans that depend on the weather, from vacations and weddings to sporting events and outdoor activities."

I have bad news for those of you looking forward to a nice, easy spring. It's supposed to be colder and rainier than usual in May in southern Quebec.

TL;DR According to the Farmer's Almanac, it is going to be colder than average in May this year. The almanac also predicts almost twice as much precipitation than the average.

The almanac predicts that the first week of May will be cool, with spells of rain. Not a great start. The rainy weather of the last few weeks definitely has us all hoping for better days soon.

Don't lose hope, however, because the second week of May is predicted to be nicer. In the words of the Old Farmer's almanac, it will be "nice."

The third and fourth weeks of May will be rainy and cold, unfortunately. 

Overall, the average temperature is set to be around 12 degrees, which is one degree below the normal average in May. Furthermore, the almanac predicts a total of 105 mm of rain, which is 40 mm more than the average.

That's almost twice as much rain as what we're used to! This will no doubt complicate the spring flooding that the province has experienced in the last few days.
