The past two and half weeks of April have been consistently windy with single digit RH a daily occurrence. The UV index has been 10+ for many days in row as well. We have lost another 2" of soil moisture this month, so along with March's deficit, that puts us 4" down. This current week of moisture will likely stop the downward plunge, but the winds and heat of May are coming... CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Placitas 3.8 ENE on 4/25/2017
