Water-year to Date Departure from Normal

The area East of Carlsbad, NM in Eddy county going into Lea county has had 2-4 or even 6 inches more rain than normal since October 1st.  The figure above shows that this is almost triple the normal precipitation in places. The mesquite is bright green and there are many flowers, despite below-freezing temperatures at the beginning of the week.  A good place for some springtime botany!
