April continues to astonish and amaze in the rain department. With another inch plus of water in the rain gauge, we are now nearing 5 1/2 inches this month! That makes this the wettest month since last October, and the biggest surplus (+1.98") since December 2014.

Winds won't be much of a help to shake out the cloud deck.

Here's to a taste of summer!
