Wet start to one of the driest months of the yearJuly 1st, 2012 at 9:48 pm by David Mazza under Weather
With the end of June, or as I should call it, ‘April 2.0′ our hopes weren’t great for rainfall. Typically June is one of the wettest months of the year her in Austin. At Mabry June averages 4.33″ of rainfall ranking #2 only behind May. At ABIA the 4.38″ average makes June the wettest month on average. By contrast in July the averages are only 1.88″ at Mabry and 2.45″ at ABIA, which rank #12 and #6 as far as the wettest months.
Below are some crazy stats to chew on from today’s rainfall when you compare it to our two driest months so far this year.
|Today vs Apr/Jun||0.10″||0.11″|
|Today vs Apr %||173%||456%|
|Today vs Jun %||633%||195%|
|Today vs Apr/Jun||136%||137%|
Today’s rainfall totals at Mabry and ABIA rank as the 13th and 14th heaviest daily rainfall total for 2012.
