A very dry April and an uncertain weather outlook for May

Posted: Friday, May 2, 2014 4:29 pm

April 2014 went into the record books as the third driest April ever for Galveston with only 0.10 inches of rain recorded. That brought total precipitation since January 1 to 4.97 inches of rain, 8.14 inches less than would be expected for the first four months of the year. League City fared a little better with 1.46 inches in April, but that was still less than half of normal for the month. League City has measured 6.35 inches of rain since Jan. 1, which is 7.58 inches less than would be expected.

Fortunately, some showers will be moving into our area today, providing fairly light but still much needed moisture. Beyond that, the outlook is much more uncertain.
