July 2,2015 – drought report

June wasn’t our monsoon season that we often have.  With only 50.5mm of rainfall record and of that 50mm, 20mm was a localized 1 hour downpour.  Same storm but just 2km north received 20mm less rain during that storm. That weather station only recorded 27.2mm of rainfall for June.

Start conserving water.  Going to be a dry summer. I’m surprised we don’t have any water restriction yet.
