Lack of rain after April showers taking toll on lawns
Wednesday, June 6, 2012
The rainfall levels for Jefferson City are around normal for this time of the year. But that won’t last, if the current dry trend continues.
“March was warm and wet, which helped,” said meteorologist Kris Sanders with the National Weather Service in St. Louis. “May, though, put a dent into those levels.”
In May, the Jefferson City Memorial Airport got 1.26 inches of rainfall. That’s 3.72 inches lower than what we normally get, which is 4.98 inches.
