Rain: Late Storm Brings 0.75 Inches
While I was away traveling in the South, we had an unusual late rain storm that appears to have dropped 0.75 inches of new precipitation. That brings our total for the 2012-2013 rain year to 25.6 inches (the rain year goes from July 1 to June 30 of the following year). Oddly, there is rain in the forecast for tomorrow and the following day, so we may end the year somewhat better off than looked likely only a few weeks ago. Average annual rainfall in Santa Rosa is a little more than 36 inches, so we will fall short of normal by about 10 inches in any case, barring a massive storm in the next few days--which seems unlikely.
