Weather in May

May is warm and beautiful in Massachusetts, with the spring season at its peak. The missing sun is back in the skies, and the long hours of daylight spread joy over the landscape. The peak of the spring season brings back the migratory birds with the promise of abundant freshwater in ponds, lakes, and rivers. Blossoming flowers and a green landscape create a lovely atmosphere full of energy and activity.
May registers 3" (76mm) to 5" (127mm) of rain, but the snowfall is on its last legs, and the southeastern shores rarely receive any. Worthington in the west has comfortable temperatures between 42°F (5.6°C) to 66°F (18.9°C), while New Bedford in the east is pleasant in the range of 49°F (9.4°C) to 67°F (19.4°C).
Biking, hiking, kayaking, and fishing gather steam in the 267 hours of bright sunshine. Keep in mind the unpredictable nature of rain in New England while outdoors. May is an excellent time to beat the summer crowds in Massachusetts.
