The week started off dry and windy before the first monsoon moisture of the season moved in on Thursday with clouds and very windy conditions. A thunderstorm moved through during the late afternoon/early evening on Thursday with a little rain. Only .03 inches of rain fell. It was very cloudy on Saturday with rain off and on but only amounted to .01. .04 inches was the total for the week. It was a warm week with highs in the 80's all week and a high of 89° on Thursday. Lows ranged from a low of 49° on Wednesday to lows in the 60's to end the week. Winds finally calmed down to end the week on Saturday. Grasses and plants in the open wildland areas are turning brown. The yard looks nice and green, thanks to irrigation, and the vegetable garden is doing well. The squash and pumpkin both started blooming but it will be some time before it starts producing fruit. The Yellow Swallowtail butterfly has been visiting the garden a lot and saw a garter snake on a few occasions. Saw the frog on the patio during the brief storm on Thursday but haven't seen it since.  View

We only had a trace of rainfall this week and have had 3.65” in the past 4 weeks. Conditions are mildly drier than normal for this time of year. Temperatures have been in the upper 80s and lower 90s for highs and mid to lower 60s for lows. The small stream near here has quit flowing about a week ago and the small pools that are left are drying up fast. Other waterbodies seem lower than normal as well. Soil moisture is also low and is affecting plant and crop growth especially on the hills. There is significant wilting of plants in the afternoon heat but they are recovering by next morning. There is a low danger of fire currently but that could increase quickly with some wind and lower humidity.  View

A dry week with mostly clear skies after morning marine layer; average high/low of 68f and 48f are 3 and 4 degrees below normal, respectively. Water year total of 62.98" holding at 123% of normal. ETo 0.56", for a total of 5.29" since April 1st, now running 3 weeks ahead of last year. Ruth Lake Reservoir 92% on 6/20. Mad River at 5.56 ft and 152 cfs/Eel River 9.56 ft and 849 cfs. Trinity River 56 degrees at Helena and lower Klamath River at 66 degrees. Local vegetable gardens doing much better this year compared to last year, and Himalaya berries putting out abundant blooms. Small wildfires breaking out around the area, but no large ones, as occurring elsewhere in California. California's Fish and Wildlife Commission on Wednesday approved the listing of White Sturgeon as a candidate for listing under the state's Endangered Species Act. Large algae blooms in the San Francisco Bay Area killed almost 900 in the last two years. It is North America's largest freshwater fish.  View

I've checked moderately dry, but now that we're in the dry season, this is actually normal for the time of the year. Field grasses are brown, as usual, but shrubs, trees and perennials are doing nicely. The intense winds died down a bit this week, and the past three days have been glorious - mild temperatures, blue skies, afternoon sea breeze. Lots of RVs, campers and eco tourists coming into the area, so our first responders are on alert for people getting into trouble in the rivers or in the surf. Many do not expect the water to be only 50 degrees. Our little family of foxes continues to do well and the youngsters are growing quickly. Good crop of hummingbirds this year, with good sightings of young Rufous--one species that has been declining, so this is good news.  View

We have 12 acres; on about 3 of those acres we have mostly native short grasses, predominantly blue gramma, but also considerable buffalograss and, to a much lesser extent, side oats gramma. Last year at this time, the excellent rain we had through May and June produced luxurious blue gramma growth and seed heads like I don’t think we’ve ever seen in the 35 years we’ve lived on our property. This year, almost nothing is growing in our three-acre short grass except exotics like yellow sweet clover and a few other nonnative weeds. The grass is now turning brown and crispy. We worry deeply about fire, despite having done a lot of fire mitigation here in our arid grassland. Llast night, an idiot neighbor fired off a fireworks ROCKET, which is extremely illegal. Two summers ago, we found a burned out rocket on our back lawn, 10-15’ from our roof. This year, fire potential is even greater given how incredibly hot it has been already even before the solstice and how dry it is right now. Any rain we’ve had in the last month has been just teaser amounts. The temperatures have been way above normal, with many 90-100º days in June. This is unusual and I’ve had to n erase watering to July levels way ahead of schedule. My perennials and other flowering plants are all fading -2 weeks early, and our black-chinned hummingbirds are wanting for natural sources of nectar.  View

Going to Moderately Dry. We have not have appreciable rain for quite some time. May was dry and June is very dry. Non-irrigated portions of my landscape are very dry with little moisture in the top layers of soil. The perennial flowers that are usually very pretty are stunted and blossoms are much smaller than last year. Many of the shrubs are showing signs of stress due to dryness. Residual snowpack is non-existent in the South Platte drainage where I live per the Snotel site map. North Platte drainage is at 67% of normal SWE. Wildlife seems to be doing fairly well. Lots of deer fawns and elk calves around the neighborhood. Cow Creek seemed lower than normal when we fished it almost a week ago, and the Big Thompson through town is also down a bit. A report from a hiker summitting Long's Peak this past week said they did not need traction devices on the Keyhole route.  View

The 2" of rain we received yesterday and overnight came just in time as our lawn was turning brown after the 90° heat last week. Rain barrels are refilled and the lawn should recover in a few days. After a dry start to the month we are now up to the normal rainfall for the entire month. Fire danger is low. Garden, trees and shrubs are doing well. We are picking blueberries and it looks like we'll have a nice peach crop this year.  View

.63 inches of rain this past week, a little below our norm but sufficient for a healthy environment. It appears that we are entering the summer weather pattern of daily thunderstorms and high humidity combined with sunny skies and oppressive heat. We are in full summer mode as a vacation destiny. The stores, the beach and the restaurants are all experiencing high volumes of tourist activity. The fire danger is still relatively low and the vegetation and plant world is alive and well.

General: About normal for this time of year: hot and dry. Not overwhelming...90 today is predicted, and it will possibly hit that. Agriculture: Soil moisture is about 10% at 3". The dryland wheat is looking fine...no signs of stress yet. It's growing nicely. Fire: Pocatello is listed as "moderate" fire danger, and that feels about right. Everything is dry, of course. The risk keeps increasing, as always, as things dry out and the wind rises. Plants/Wildlife: Lots of bird nesting and bird babies. Saw deer and fawn tracks yesterday, and Sand hill crane tracks (and heard cranes). No new mammals to report. Addendum: saw what I think were elk tracks (and baby) just now on my walk. The tracks were on the small end (around 3"), but definitely not deer.

Basically we are on a 3 week period of no rain that amounted to much of any benefit. Along with an early heat period of above normal temps. The corn feilds nearby look good and tall but rain and the timing of it will be important. We had a brief heavy downpour early this morning of .41 inches but it came so fast and heavy a lot of it may have ran off. Still need to get out and see if the cracks are as open. Minor chances of some more precip this coming week. We will see. Cicadas 2024. They are done here and Glad to make note of it. 2037 will likely be a big year too.  View

After 8 hot and dry days I received a welcomed 0.58" of rain early this morning from a band of thunderstorms! Just when I was thinking of moving my condition to Moderately Dry we got this rain which was enough to keep my condition at Mildly Dry, for the month of June I am now just over two inches below the monthly average and more hot dry days are predicted this week. Our lawns had stop growing and the green color had faded a lot. This rain will help our area farm fields but more rain is needed. I checked the first planted corn field, (that I know of) yesterday and while dry the corn plants were 6 feet tall. My garden produced a great crop of broccoli and I am picking wonderful kohlrabi, the cucumbers and tomatoes all look very good and I am hoping to pick some in a couple of weeks. I have had to water the garden a couple of times a week. The pond level dropped to just below the overflow pipe this week, the rain last night has stopped the decline but not enough to overflow any. The geese babies all look like geese now but cannot fly yet.  View

Another rainy week with 2.43 in. of rain for the week. Quite a few breezy days also and hot. Corn and beans growing like crazy, so is the grass. Gardens and flowers looking good. Mid week heat did slow the lawns down for a bit but with the rain need mowing again. Missed some potential bad weather Saturday afternoon. Watched it North of this location moving East and then dropping to the South. Clouds looked like our training pictures. We had Tornado watch's which turned to warnings and sightings reported. As for wildlife, when I went down to close the pasture gate later than usual Friday night, I or something must have disturbed a skunk as they let a warning scent into the night.
