The coldest weather region wide in May occurred on this date in 1966. Widespread frost and freezing temperatures set spring back, though a cool April made sure that the vegetation was not too far advanced. 24 in Burlington was by no means the coldest in the state, but it is the May record for Burlington. Elsewhere thermometers tumbled to 19 in Cavendish, VT, and 15 in West Burke, VT. 6 feet of snow remained on top of the peaks of the Green Mountains.
