May 312009

It has been a wet month and the San Fancisco Peaks are white once again (Downtown Webcam can get you a picture). I recorded 0.66 inches of precipitation for a monthly total of 1.99 inches. This includes the snow-like hail that fell. The National Weather Service at the airport reported only 0.36 inches leaving them just short of the 0.46 inch record. This brought them to 2.08 inches for the month which is 1.29 inches, or more than double the normal for the month. The record for May is 4.14 inches. We’ll see what today brings, but we probably won’t be seeing a record month.

The last week’s precip looks like this from radar estimation(from Intellicast):

Radar estimation of precipitation, 5-24-09 to 5-31-09

It should dry out from here forward. There is a chance again today, but not as significant as yesterday. It continues to decline through this week. We should be warming slightly as well.  It should be a great week for getting the scooter back out on the road. There is a chance for more rain around the middle of June.
