Looking back at the weather, specifically at recent rainfall, best I can tell it has been a dry April. If my info is correct, we have received 2.3 inches of rain so far this month … April 2021. Our wettest day was April 11, 1.8 inches was recorded at the Curt Brown Airport NWS site … Looking back, our average annual rainfall is 58.5 inches and our historical wettest day is May 29 … All from the National Weather Service files…

Speaking of weather, sunny today, with a high near 88 and windy, gusts as high as 21 mph … Mostly clear tonight with a low around 63 and windy. Thursday, our high is expected to reach 90 degrees, windy with gusts, as high as 23 mph … Only chance or rain over the next week or so is a 20% chance Friday…

We need rain … corn just becoming visible in planted fields…
