Average Precipitation for Texas in May





The tables below give monthly averages for rainfall plus, in some places, the occasional snowfall during May at cities, towns and parks in Texas.

Each place has a total for the amount of precipitation it usually receives this month. Most sites also have information on the number of days with wet weather. That includes the days when precipitation amounts to 0.01 inches (0.25 millimetres) or more.

The precipitation totals are averages based on weather data collected from 1981 to 2010 for the NOAA National Climatic Data Center.
