Monthly Rainfall & Temperatures

We only began measuring rainfall in March, 2012. This has been a period of very low precipitation (La Nina conditions).  In fact, 2012-14 has broken the old records; our only precipitation in January, 2014 came from dew.  

Here are the rainfall totals in Mother Nature's Backyard as of 8/31/14.   We  are now in the summer dry season, as is normal for this time of year.  We did have 0.05 inches of rain in August - rare but not unheard of in our area.   See the 'Current Photos' page to see what a local native plant garden looks like this time of year.

We began measuring weekly temperatures the first week of July, 2012.  Here are the minimum and maximum recorded temperatures as of 12/30/12.
