Submitted: 5/25/2019 7:46 AM
Scale Bar: Moderately Wet
May 18-25,2019: a little more than 1.81 inches rain over the week-- only one dry day, greatest amounts (0.51 and 1.14 in) of rain measured on Monday and Tuesday AM. Tuesday's heaviest rain was pre-dawn, about 4 and 5 AM. Wednesday was sunny and dry until late afternoon, then light rain again overnight. Day and night temperatures are cool, lower than average. The soil is very wet. Plants, shrubs, and trees are thriving in the rains. Lawn grass is growing inches during the week. Grasses are also thriving in the foothills and mountain areas, and there are concerns that drying grasses may add to wildland fire dangers later this summer. Pollen counts were very low until later in the week when rainfall was a trace or only a few hundredths a day. Snow occurred at above about 6,000 ft elevation during wettest storms, and mountain peaks are covered again. Streams and rivers are handling the continuing precipitation with only minor flooding in lowest areas adjacent to the stream channels. Upper Boise basin reservoirs are at 91%, 73%, and 93% capacity (Lucky Peak, Arrowrock, and Anderson Ranch). Rain is forecast until mid-week then drying and warmer.
