Rain: More Rain (March 13, 2010)

It's a beautiful sunny day today, but we've had another 0.9 inches of rain since last reporting. Our 2009-2010 rainy season total now stands at 24.7 inches, which is behind the historical average of 25.8 inches for this day (March 13), but other locations in Santa Rosa have reported as much as 29.4 inches, or more than 3.5 inches higher than normal.

Now the question is how late in the season will it rain this year? We've already had more precipitation than in all of the 2008-2009 season (the season goes from July 1 to June 30), but late rains really help the plants through the hot dry summer. We'll see.
