It does not seem like it.

It seems like Boston had a winter that was much snowier, colder, and longer than average.

Than it had a spring in April to May that was much cloudier than average.

And it seems like for June it is cloudier and colder than average for most days.
June 14th and the forecast high is 59 degrees with a low of 50.
I notice many days this June highs barely reached 60 and lows were in the 50s.

Or is all of that Boston weather in an average year?

There is no "average" when it comes to weather in New England.

Another thing you cannot trust in Boston is the weather forecasters. They'll say its gonna be 60 and cloudy and then it will be in the high 80's and not a cloud in the sky. You just cant tell.
We do tend to get long streaks of rain or long streaks of sun in the summer though.
there will be a drought one week with no sign of rain, then the next week we will drown.

Atleast this winter we had the great and wonderful "THUNDER SNOW!!!"

As a weather forecaster myself, I am disheartened by some of the TV "personalities" as well. That said, I think that NWS Taunton does a decently good job with their forecasts for the area.

Through early February or so there was substantially more snow than normal, so much so that even though the snow faded out later in the winter, the total snowfall for the season was still well above average.

It's the norm to get a real mix of weather around here during the spring. This means it's not unusual to have damp, chilly days, pleasantly warm and pleasantly cool days, and the occasional hot day all mixed in with each other, with plenty of shifting back and forth in the kind of weather you see from one day to the next. It's also certainly not unheard of to get a raw day here and there in June, so the chilly weather of the past couple of days is not some freakish, once-in-a-century kind of thing. However, it does seem that the mix of weather this spring has included more of the gray, chilly weather and fewer nice days than what happens most years.

No, I moved here from CA 10 years ago and this was by far the worst winter and worse spring. Don't worry, most spring seasons here are better than this.
