Mariton: Precipitation So Far…

The talk this spring has been about the weather.  May was dry; June was wet.  When it was all added up, Mariton ended the first half of the year close to average.   We received 24.65 inches of precipitation during the first six months.  I normally say that we should expect to receive close to average precipitation during a six or twelve month period, but this year we are only 0.10” off of the average.  Given the extremes this year, even I was a little surprised by how close we were to average at this point.
