We are wrapping up a period of dry weather that currently is the driest stretch of the year.

Our last soaking rain was April 29. Since then, we have had eight-day out of 10 with dry weather.  In fact, we had seven straight from April 30 through May 6. You have to go back to the middle of November to see a dry stretch that lasted that long.

We did pick up a little light rain on May 6 and 7 but it only amounted to 0.06 inches.  The month of May has a total of 0.06 inches to this point.  That puts the region 0.96 inches below normal. Since March 1 we have picked up 6.06 inches.  We are dry though as we are 1.26 inches below normal.

Looking back at the year, we have picked up a total of 10.36 inches.  We are also below normal for the amount of rain this year as we are 1.66 inches below normal.  This will change on Friday as a storm system swings into the region bringing rain and thunderstorms.  Some of the thunderstorms may be strong or severe.
