While the weather can be very summer-like by the end of May, a severe frost and freeze occurred on this date in 1961. After a mid-month heat-wave with temperatures near 90, the weather pattern changed sharply. Temperatures fell to the 20s, creating orchard and early crop damage of a half million dollars. Record temperatures included 25 in Burlington and St. Johnsbury, 23 in Bloomfield, and a winter-like 19 in West Burke, VT.
