Certainly we are all keenly aware of how wet this year has seemed so far and the numbers back up that feeling.

Every month so far this year has seen above average precipitation (based on 16-year running average) and we have in fact received more precipitation so far this year than in all of last year.

Our current total for 2021 is at 9.86 inches. This is in comparison to the 9.73 inches we received in ALL of last year. This also is nearly 3 inches above our January through May average of 6.94 inches.

These numbers certainly help to ease drought and wildfire concerns. However, Mother Nature can be very fickle and turn off the spout at any moment. We will need consistent, solid numbers throughout the rest of spring and summer to truly put any fears to rest.
