July 2020 Brought Some Nice and Welcome Rains

 

 

While the first six months of 2020 have been lean as far as rainfall is concerned, July has tried to make up for the lack of moisture with a series of showers through the month that swept across southeastern Colorado.

Here are the precipitation results, in inches, for regional counties for the full years between 2016 and 2019, and the first half of the year for 2020, as well as July and the total precipitation report, year-to-date.
