Precipitation Deficit Grows

Dry and hot weather isn't a good combination and it was drier and hotter at nighttime than normal in May, which is supposed to be a soggy month with an average of nearly four inches of rain.

The 2012 edition of May, however, saw just 2.25 inches of rain, as measured at WFLO, the National Weather Service's Cooperative Observer for the area. The precipitation deficit for the year now is more than four inches.

Let us all hope that May is not a forecast of the summer.

I'm just saying.
