From Exceptional Drought To Widespread Moderate To Heavy Rains In One Day!

Blog Updated 5-2-2021.

4-30-2021
Carlsbad, New Mexico

In one day's time, we went from exceptional drought conditions with days of blowing dust to widespread moderate to heavy rainfall areawide. It has been a long time since we have seen standing water like in the photo above from heavy rains.

A wonderful slow-soaking rain occurred yesterday morning into early Friday morning. Although at times it was moderate to heavy no significant flooding or flash flooding was noted locally. My 72-hour storm total ended up at 2.11". This is my highest 24-hour total since I recorded 2.21" on 10-4-2015. This is also my greatest 24-hour total in the month of April since I first started keeping records at this sight in May of 2007. I have recorded my wettest April on record going back to 2007 with 2.24" for the month now. My year-to-date total now stands at 3.22".
