Precipitation Here - Meteorological Spring 2018

Image from Jack Hales cam wall above is of afternoon storms today over the Grand Teton - nothing like that visible from here today.

Since tomorrow is the start of meteorological summer, I thought that I'd provide a quick summary of spring 2018 rainfall here at the house. Very, very little to report as March brought 0.02" and May followed with 0.01" - so a total of 0.03" for the season.

This is easily the driest Spring here since I began keeping records mid-summer of 1999. Next two driest years were spring 2002 with 0.15" and then spring 2017 with 0.17".  The wettest springs here were 2001 with 2.71" and then spring 2004 with 2.32". It's been a long time since we've seen those kind of wet springs here in southeastern Arizona.
