A Wet Spring For New Mexico?
(March 1st - March 22nd).
We are off to a wet start for March precipitation-wise locally. Here at our home in Carlsbad I've already measured .59" compared to the long term average (1900-2014) for Carlsbad of .47". Typically March is one of our driest months of the year so its always a good thing to see rain fall during this month. This brings my year-to-date total to 2.35" compared to our long term average in Carlsbad (Jan - March) of 1.31". Take a look at the long range spring outlook below that was compiled by the Albuquerque NWS Office. Its interesting that they use 1941 as one of the analog years to compare how wet this spring may be in New Mexico. That was the wettest year in New Mexico's history.
