This spring in Illinois was the warmest on record

Posted by wlpo on June 2, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – For those who think this may just be the warmest spring ever in Illinois, the state’s climatologist has this to say: You’re right.

In a news release, Jim Angel of the Illinois State Water Survey says March, April and May were warmer than at any time since records started being kept all the way back in 1895.

This year’s spring temperatures averaged 59.1 degrees, or nearly 2 degrees warmer than the average temperature of 57.3 in 1977.

The average temperature of 48.8 degrees from January through the end of May was also the highest on record.

Angel says that there has also been less rain than normal this spring, with the 7.72 inches that has fallen being 3.65 inches below normal.
