Rainfall Report from the Chimicum Valley


Al Latham’s monthly report. Good news for our water supply.

Here’s your monthly rainfall report from www.cocorahs.org station WA-JF-1 located 5.1 miles south of Chimacum (slightly off Center) at 470’ elevation.

Gazing at the water level in the Chimacum valley you would think it has been wet.  And you would be right! Water level about as high as it usually gets.

Wetter than usual but actually very similar to 2016.

In January we had 6.45” rain with average being 4.3”.   Water year (Oct 1- Sept. 30) so far is 22.07”, with average 18”.

Port Townsend station had 2.34” January, with water year so far 10.36”.

Lake Cushman station had 23.79” in January, with water year so far 76.96”.

NOAA climate center prognostications are for a warm and “normal” rain in February.  Feb-April they’re guessing cooler temps and more rain.

Til next month…   Al Latham
