Last night marked the end of our bout of rainy weather. Today we will transition to cooler and more variable weather,

The Airport got another 24.2mm. We are really closing in on that record now. July-October, 1896 got 159mm, 1929 got 214.9mm, and 2012 has 116mm 140.2mm so far. So we need only over 43.0mm 18.8mm in the next 13 days to dodge the 1896 record.

I would be surprised if we didn’t get that. In the end, that would still make 2012 likely (i will confirm it with another troll through the data) the driest July-October period in 116 years rather than 118 years. Still an exceptionally dry period.

As for the immediate future, I’d be surprised if we get over 10C in the next week or so. Good chance for fog too… But at least it will not be pouring rain and snow is likely to appear on the mountain tops.

Happy weekend!
