May Discobs Thread

The 0.64” that fell earlier brings May’s total to 8.22”.   It’s only the third 8 inch plus month I have measured in the last nine years.

8.85" Jul 2017
8.78" Apr 2011

My top 3 rainiest months since I moved here:

May 2018: 13.47"; 12 days of measurable rainfall

May 2016: 12.81"; 21 days of measurable rainfall

June 2015: 12.52"; 18 days of measurable rainfall

Even more impressive about this month was that all of that rain fell from May 12 onwards, whereas with the other two months it was spread throughout.
