I’m back again to discuss my monthly weather report from My AcuRite.
Back by popular demand! Precipitation totals!
Some of you noticed we removed the precipitation totals in the October Report. We did this because, for our northern friends, winter precipitation can really mess up the rainfall totals if you’re not careful. The rain gauge only measures precipitation when the snow or freezing rain melts, what we call liquid equivalent. But since many of you requested the data, we’ve included it again in the monthly report. Please make sure you’re aware of what you’re looking at when analyzing the data – especially if you’re in an area that can get snow or that messy frozen/ mixed precipitation.
But not me! You can see in my report that in the San Francisco Bay Area, we finally received a good rainfall over Thanksgiving week. The day with the most rainfall accumulation occurred on November 26th with a total of 0.82 inches, reported by my AcuRite Atlas™. It has pretty much rained on and off since we’ve got a pretty good atmospheric river coming in. So, my December weather report will include more of this, which is a great start for the Sierra snowpack and the 2020 water year for California!
Share and discuss your rainfall totals or liquid equivalent in the comments below, you’ll hear more from me next month and in the meantime, Happy Holidays!
