† Although normals are established by the National Centers For Environmental Information, based upon averages for rainfall seasons 1991 through 2020 (updated May 4, 2021), this station's data only go back to 1999, which falls short of NCEI's typical 30-year data calculation period. NCEI does not provide normals for this station. Consequently, the Almanac calculated unofficial normals for this station from the 21-year period of 1999-2020 (as close to NCEI's calculation period as possible). Total season normal for this station is 13.42 inches.
