Meantime, the local area July total, was 55.4 millimeters, but despite being more than two a half times the amount we received, in the same month last year…that’s still only two-thirds of the July average, of 83.2.

It was also the third consecutive month, of below normal precipitation…and it left the total this year for the months of May, June and July, at 125.5 millimeters.

That’s a three month shortfall of 68 millimeters so to cover it and the August norm, we’ll need another 125 millimeters, this month alone.
