Larry V. maintains a rain gauge on his property that has recorded rainfall data since 2001. Larry has been kind enough to share the data with the community, and updates us monthly during the rainy season. The "rain season" runs from July 1 to the following June 30.
Rainfall data has been updated of the end of October, 2021. We had a very nice October rainfall.
The total rainfall for this rain year is 2.49", which is nearly double the 14-year average at Varian Ranch for this period. The total rainfall last year was only 9.93" compared to a 21-year average of 16.75". Our area remains in a severe drought condition despite the October rain.
