Dry Streak Ends! Here Comes Some Rain

The nearly two week dry stretch has come to an end! Now it's time to rain.
Rain, rain go away!

Well that worked :)

The past two weeks has been dry. In fact so dry that some towns haven't seen a drop in nearly two weeks! Now that is nothing abnormal and it actually has provided beautiful foliage drives and picturesque views, but now it's time for a drink.

The graph shows Burlington's precipitation courtesy NOAA/NWS. The green shows surplus of rainfall to average, while the brown shows a deficit. The lower green bars show the date and amount of rainfall at the airport. In the past 30 days the Burlington area has actually been *up* on precipitation due to some heavy, yet infrequent, storms.

The rainless streak stands at:
Rutland, VT: 13 days
Burlington: 12 days
St. Johnsbury, VT: 12 days
Montpelier, VT: 11 days
Springfield, VT: 11 days

Some towns experienced rainfall after 11 days of dry weather, while a few other towns snuck out a couple more dry days. This streak is through Saturday, October 5. The rainless streak will come to an end for all by Monday/Tuesday!

This will be good news for the upcoming rain event Monday-Tuesday because even if our area gets heavy rainfall, the dry ground will help soak all that up! It will be another heavy rain event that will lead to more dry weather through Columbus Day weekend!
