Rainy May

Posted: 14 May 2018 05:33 AM

This May has seen plenty of rainfall events. The featured map displays an analysis of the longest stretch of hours between periods of measurable rain. This is based on hourly RADAR based estimates of rainfall from the NOAA Stage IV product. The plotting unit of days should not be confused with calendar days, but simply the maximum stretch of hours expressed in units of 24 hour days. The areas in blue are indicated to have only gone, at most, between 48 and 72 hours between measurable rainfall events this May. The rest of the state has not fared much better, but there have been plant-able stretches of time.

Good = 15
