RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Richmond area had its warmest spring and the eighth-warmest May on record.
 
    
Figures released by the National Weather Service in Wakefield on Friday show the average temperature from March through May was 62.4 degrees. That breaks the mark of 61.4 degrees set for the three months in 2010.
 
    
Four of the warmest springs in the area have come in the past eight years. Last year's spring average of 59.8 degrees was the 10th warmest and the 2004 period was the sixth warmest.
 
    
For the month of May, the average temperature of 70.5 degrees in the Richmond area was about 4 degrees shy of the record for the month set in 1896.
 
    
Three of the 11 warmest Mays for the area have come since 2004.
