Official Holyoke weather reporter Dan Kafka recorded temps dipping to the freezing point four times within the past week.
The low temp recording on both Wednesday, May 7, and Sunday, May 11, was 32 degrees, while a 30-degree low was recorded both Thursday, May 8, and Monday, May 12.
The weather scene in Holyoke Monday, May 12, felt a whole lot more like winter than spring. Rain and snowfall in Holyoke during the past week have amounted to 1.19 inches of moisture.
On the other end of the spectrum, the mercury climbed to between 69-78 degrees four times within the same week.
Tuesday, May 6, saw a 78-degree day, and the 72-degree high on Saturday, May 10, was great for the league track meet in Holyoke.
The 48-degree high on graduation Sunday, May 11, was colder than preferred, but the long overdue moisture was welcomed.
As School Superintendent Bret Miles said in his graduation welcome, “In an agricultural community, this is what we call a beautiful day.” He referenced the much-needed moisture, as well as the chance to celebrate youth reaching the graduation milestone.
