My Greatest 24-Hour Total So Far This Year - .70" On Sept 6th.

These graphics are somewhat misleading in that locally they show more rainfall to have fallen than has been measured in some spots. A case in point is here at our home in northwestern Carlsbad. So far for September I've recorded 1.79" which is slightly above the Carlsbad Climate Co-Op Stations long term average of 1.67". However for the year I've only managed to measure 4.87" in our rain gague. Which compared to the long term average to date for the Carlsbad Climate Co-Op Station (10.37") is 5.50" below average to date. 

Much of New Mexico had average to above summer monsoon rainfall but this isn't the case locally. The Carlsbad Climate Co-Op Station has measured 1.89" so far this month compared to an average to date of 1.67". This brings the station total for the year to 6.98" compared with the long term average to date of 10.37". That station located 6 miles southeast of my station has had 2.11" more rainfall than my gauge but is still some 3.39" below average for the year so far.

Roswell is pretty much in the same boat. The Roswell Industrial Air Center ASOS has measured 1.05" for the month compared to a long term average to date of 1.21". This brings their year-to-date total to 5.09" compared to a long term average to date of 10.14".


September 2018.






2018 Year-To-Date.
(January 1st - Sept 22nd).






To date 2018 is going down for the most part locally as being a drier than normal year. Even in the mountains where some the wettest reporting CoCoraHS Stations have had 15" to 23" of rainfall so far this year.
