We keep getting new rain--which is great--but the historical average keeps rising, because it's normal to get rain at this time of year. The average for this date in Santa Rosa is a little over 17 inches. Last night we got 0.90 inches of new rain, bringing our total for the 2015-2016 rain year to 11.00 inches--six full inches below normal. We should catch up, if the rains continue this year. Time will tell.
[Update: Overnight on the 14th-15th we got an additional 0.60 inches, bringing the total at my Santa Rosa location now to 11.60 inches.]
[Update: More rain. It rained most of the day on the 17th and overnight into the early morning of the 18th, adding 2.05 inches of new rain. That brings our total to 13.65 inches so far. The historical average for January 18 is 18.35 inches. More rain is predicted for this week.]
