MILTON, Mass. (AP) - May in Massachusetts got off to a historically gloomy start but there’s sunny weather on the horizon.

The Boston Globe (https://bit.ly/1QWsOAfO ) reports that meteorologists at the Blue Hills Observatory in Milton observed zero minutes of sunshine during the first five days of the month. Program Director Don McCasland says it was the darkest start to May on record.

The last time May launched with such a dreary start was 2012. There was no sun for the first four days of that month and just 30 minutes on the fifth.

There was a silver lining to last week’s rain and clouds. McCasland says the wet weather helped protect plants and crops against drought.

This week is expected to be sunny and warm, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.
