On 25 May the nearest full scale weather station finally recorded it´s first above 20c temperature in this spring. That is the latest date for such event since 1965 as I have told.The glorious global warming, that´s it... However, the eastern parts of south-east Estonia were able to record an above 20c temperature on 12 April.
May as a total however probably would be not that super cold in terms of averages as the temps have very stable and without any cold spells.So like in April , the `lack of warmth´ would be the most correct wording.

June 2012 - 14.0C (-3.1C)

(Days above 20C: March 4, June 0)

First of all I would suspect that an average high of 14.2C must be a record for March for anywhere at an equivalent latitude (57N), secondly, is there anywhere else in the world supposedly with a four-season climate where the month of the spring equinox has recorded a higher average Tmax than the month of the summer solstice at all, never mind in the same year?
spectacular, indeed!

The last May rain I could find in Resolute, Canada was on May 31, 1998. In fact most years don't see an above freezing temperature until early June and it can be around summer solstice in very rare instances. 1978 for instance never broke the freezing mark until June 20.

In 2015, as of May 29 at 2:55 am, the highest temperature has been 30 F / -1 C.

Resolute is the coldest inhabited place in the world. The average temperature is colder in July than other parts of Canada are in January!

Is Eureka inhabited at all? I would think that's colder than Resolute.

Eureka is a research and military outpost. No one actually lives there year round.

Yup average temperatures there are under 41 F / 5 C even at the height of summer. Yearly maximums are usually in the 50s F / 10-15 C. In 2004, the highest recorded temperature was only 46 F / 8 C.

Vancouver's warmest temperature was 59 F / 15 C in December 2014 (on the 9th) and average was 46 / 36 F (8 / 2 C). This was the coldest month of the 2014-2015 winter. Resolute's warmest temperature in ALL of 2014 was 50 F / 10 C (on August 8th) and their July average (warmest month) was 43 / 34 F (6 / 1 C)!

As for 2015, Resolute broke freezing for the first time on June 3rd, which seems to be around average.
