August Rainfall

Just totaling up my rainfall to send in to the National Weather Service: 1.4 inches (35.5 mm) in August. The official Albuquerque total, out at the airport, was 1.05 inches (26.7 mm). Around town, from the COCORAHS network, totals ranged from a low of 0.54 inch (13.7 mm) out on the southwest mesa to a high of 2.59 inches (65.8 mm) up in the foothills.

Last night, we got another 1.2 inches (30.5 mm) in one spectacular cloudburst. And I’ve got my eye on Henrietta, hoping for more later in the week.
