EL PASO, Texas -

The month of August was pretty much a dud for getting any significant rainfall. We picked up just a little more than one inch for the month (1.12”) when we average just over two inches (2.01”). This is .89” below average for the month. Our monsoon was looking great after a very healthy month of rain in July but then we hit this little snag called August – normally our wettest month of the year.

August was also a month where we kept our triple digit days below normal. We only had two days of triple digits – both days at 100 degrees. This is the least amount of triple digit days for August since 2008 when we had none.
