July And August Rainfall Here At House

There was no rain here at house during June and the final total for July and August, 2014, ended up at 4.46 inches. This was the sixth driest total during the 16 years that I have kept records. There were only 5 days with rainfall of 0.25" or more. These five days accounted for 67 percent of the entire summer's rain. The two big rain days in August provided 1.84", which fell in less than 2 hours - so 41% of the summer's rainfall here occurred during a very short time. Both the heavy rains were produced from small storm cells that developed just to the southwest of here.
