Mariton: Dry Time

April 3, 2012

There is a lot of talk about how dry it has been.  We ended March with 0.97″ of precipitation.  My average at Mariton is 4.19 inches of the month, so that is dry.  This virtually ties the driest March that I have on record in 2006 when we received 0.96 inches.

 Longer term, at the end of the first quarter we have received 5.18 inches, compared to 10.63 inches for the average.
