With 0.56" measured on 3-1-17, the most one day total since January 13, a little relief from the drought has occurred with grass greening a little. February rainfall total at this location was only 0.32", making it the 5th month in a row with below normal rainfall, also was the warmest on record. Still very dry with streams & ponds low. Brush & grass fires fill the air with the smell of smoke almost daily. Much more rain needed. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #O'Fallon 6.0 WSW on 3/4/2017
