Monthly Rainfall & Temperatures

We only began measuring rainfall in March, 2012. This has mostly been a period of  very low precipitation, with our area in the worst drought recorded.  For Mother Nature's Backyard, the drought  continued through February, 2018.

Normally January and February are big rainfall months in our area.  As you can see, this winter has been extremely dry.  In fact, it may end up being the driest recorded since the 1800's.  Here are the rainfall totals in Mother Nature's Backyard as of 2/28/18.  


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