Yesterday, July 24th, Fargo Hector Int’l Airport had 0.22" of rain. That was the first measurable rain recorded at that site since June 24th, when 0.39" was reported, so it was exactly one month between measurable rain. I say measurable because there were several days, both at the end of June and throughout July where trace amounts (less than 0.01") was reported.
During that 30 day stretch, other areas did receive rain, Hector is just one location, as a matter of fact, some part of the metro received a couple of rainfalls during that 30 day stretch, but it is a good example of how dry many areas have been this summer.
There is a shot of rain again today, so hopefully we won’t have to wait another 30 days to see our next measurable rain.
