We had yet another quiet month in May with very little severe weather. Over the course of the month we experienced severe storms on only three days, with just a dozen individual reports of large hail or damaging winds. On the 19th golf ball sized hail fell on Hodgenville, on the 21st there was scattered wind damage in the Blue Grass, and on the 22nd there was some minor wind damage in Glasgow.
Rainfall and average temperatures were near normal.
