August 5, 2014

In July, we experienced 7.22 inches of rain at Mariton.  The average is 5.48 inches, so we continue to add to our surplus.  We had a couple gully washers which is characteristic of the month.  Based on my records, we are now over 8 inches above average for this point in the year.  For reference the driest July was 1999 when I recoreded 0.40 inches.  The wettest was 2004 with 12.27 inches.
