May turned cool and gave us some good rains in the first two weeks, but after that nothing measurable until the end of the month, when we had a thundershower that netted 3/10ths of an inch. According to my records, we had under 2-and-a-half inches of rain in the entire month.
You expect dryness in high summer, but it's disappointing when it's too dry so early in spring. Last year was the same. Let's hope the weather pattern changes now that it's June. There is rain in the forecast for tomorrow.*
Here's how the Ontario precipitation map looks covering April 1 to May 29:
*It rained on June 3rd, but just 4/10ths of an inch. Better than nothing, but we could use more.
