Dr. Bateson’s Weather Corner: January Totals Show Record Breaking Moisture

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Dr. Bateson, Susanville’s resident meteorological expert,¬†brings us up to date on January moisture totals here in the Honey Lake Valley.

“I have recorded 12.01 inches of precipitation water during the month of January,” said Bateson, “which broke the old record of 11.35 inches set during January of 1995.”

“The new record is 438% of average. I also measured 6.23 inches or 479% of average last October which shattered the old record of 4.33 inches which was set during October of 2010.”

The year to date total according to Bateson is now at 27.20 inches or 240% of average from July 1 to January 31st.

“If we can keep that percentage going through the rest of the year, it will break all records dating back to 1890 – the previous record was 43.85 inches or 215% of average for the year set back in 1995.”

Bateson said that to break that record we would need to receive another 16.66 inches of precipitation between now and the end of June.
