Elko County, NV

Start Date: 7/17/2018 - End Date: 7/17/2018
It is getting much drier, especially over the last 15-30 days. All grasses are cured and sage is out of green up. Stress appears to be impacting trees, with some yellow/dead leaves. It has been roughly 30 days without 0.01 and 47 days with only 0.01. The dry pattern looks to continue. Additionally, fire activity has rapidly picked up the past 2 weeks. Another ~2 weeks of this pattern and may reconsider changing condition to moderately dry. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Spring Creek 0.9 SE on 7/17/2018
