Speaking of rain. April and May rainfall are often indicative of the summer. A wet April/May seems to correlate with a moist summer. But a dry April/May correlates with a drier summer. So far we are pretty normal with the rainfall, but 2” came in one rainstorm. Outside of that storm, rainfall has not been real robust so far. Not sure how May will turn out, but pattern has looked wet, but so far it is not producing a lot of wetness. I am growing concerned for a drier than normal summer this year.
