The year is coming to a close and many of us were treated to much needed rain across the Concho Valley and the city of San Angelo earlier this week.
The months of April, May, June, and July saw above average rainfall, with the month of May being our wettest month of the year.
Typically for the month of December the city of San Angelo picks up an average of 0.92 inches of rain total (averaging all years from 1907 to 2019). So far, San Angelo is at 0.96 inches of rain for the month, 0.04 inches above average, and we still have more than half the month to go to collect any additional rain that may fall.
The city of San Angelo has picked up a total of 17.41 inches of rain so far this year. The average total rainfall each year for the city should be around 19.93 inches. We are still short by 2.52 inches and the chances for receiving this amount of rain is very slim before the end of the year.
